There are 4 comments on 10 Books to Read during Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

  1. Good list, but let’s go deeper and challenge our thinking:

    -The Making of Asian America: A History by Erika Lee

    -The Other One Percent: Indians in America by Chakravorty, Kapur, and Singh

    -Yellow: Race in America Beyond Black and White by Frank H. Wu

  2. Does anyone recommend any book(s) with an in-depth Asian American history? Going though the public education system while growing up in MA, we hardly covered this topic in any of the history classes taken.
