The Asian American Student Association has lots of exciting events this upcoming week and for the next few weeks! Please come and show your support for the programs! All the programs are FREE to attend.

We have a film series showings at Clay Theater on March 26 and March 30 from 12-6PM. The films we'll be showing have a strong emphasis on the Asian American Experiences:  Chan is Missing, Daughter from Danang, Eat a Bowl of Tea, A Family Gathering, Joy Luck Club, Strawberry Fields, and Who Killed Vincent Chin? FREE food will be provided! If you're around the student center on Monday or Friday and feeling bored, come hang out with us to we watch these movies!

In addition to the film series, we will be showing A Village Called Versailles on March 28 at Clay Theater at 4PM. A Village Called Versailles is a documentary that follows how the lives of Vietnamese Americans were affected by the disaster Hurricane Katrina left in New Orleans. We've invited Father Vien, the main protagonist, in the movie to talk to us about his own experiences.

On March 29, we have former CNN correspondent Sachi Koto speaking at Clough 144 from 11-12PM. She will be talking about the Asian American experience in the United States as well as her own experiences growing up as a third generation Japanese American in Georgia.  She was a former JCTV and NHK anchorwoman in Japan before joining CNN. She is the first Japanese American talent on-air in the southeast and the first Asian American talent on-air in Atlanta. Come listen to her during your lunch break on Thursday March 29 at Clough 144 at 11-12PM.
