Asia Pacific Cultural Center presents free screening of “Vincent Who?” at University of Washington, Tacoma

The Asia Pacific Cultural Center will be presenting a free screening of the film “Vincent Who?” at the University of Washington, Tacoma at 6 p.m. May 5. The new documentary looks at the 1982 hate crime of Vincent Chin in Detroit from the perspective of both key players and recent Asian-American activists.

The murder of Vincent Chin by two white autoworkers who claimed he and other Asian workers were taking their jobs – and the decision of the judge to sentence the murderers to a mere $3,000 fine and three years probation – was an event that galvanized the Asian American community. “Vincent Who?” looks at where that community is now via interviews with activist Helen Zia, journalist Lisa Ling, film director Renee Tajima Pena, civil rights attorney Dale Minami and more.

The screening will take place at 6 p.m. May 5 in the Carwein Auditorium, 102 Keystone Building, UWT, Tacoma. To reserve a seat, call 410-383-3900. Information: www.asiapacificculturalcenter.org, www.tacoma.washington.edu
