Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience

Thu, 02/27/2020 - 13:13
Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience

The Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience is the nation’s only museum dedicated to the pan-APA community. We chose a visit to the Wing Luke Museum because of the themes present in Alex Wagner's Futureface, this year's Western Reads selection. The only child of a white American father and a Burmese immigrant mother, Wagner did not know how to locate herself in the American story—or even, what that American story really was. In her memoir, Wagner explores the American quest for identity and desire for belonging through the lens of her own family history.

 

Visiting the Wing Luke Museum will provide participants the opportunity to delve deeper into the themes present in "Futureface" and witness more Asian Pacific Americans tell their stories and histories in their own voices.

 

This trip is FREE for participants, and is funded by the Western Reads program and the Center for Community Learning's First-Year Engagement program. We will provide boxed lunches to all participants.
