*/*About the film: */In 1982, a murder awakened a people and ignited the 
Asian American civil rights movement. Chinese American Vincent Chin was 
sought out and beaten to death by Detroit autoworkers targeted 
specifically because auto jobs were being lost to Japan. Chin was not 
Japanese. Exploring the legacy of the Vincent Chin case, this powerful 
film asks how far Asian Americans have come and how far they have yet to 
go. _/{Run time: 40 minutes}/
About the  Social Justice Film Series*/: Brought to you by the Center 
for Cultural Pluralism, the Spring 2012 Social Justice Film Series theme 
is 'Conversations at the Crossroads' and offers participants an 
educational opportunity to explore through film and subsequent discourse 
and engage issues of identity in its various forms, visible and 
invisible. Films selected for the Social Justice Film Series have two 
viewings and are generally screened up to a half hour and followed by 
an engaged discourse on the themes by the participants. To be respectful 
of your time, it is our hope that this entire educational program does 
not exceed ninety minutes.
