The Showcase, emceed by Eleanor Clement Glass, will invite audiences to open their hearts and their minds to the unique experiences of diverse Asian communities that live in the United States today.

In the wake of a rising tide of anti-Asian hate and violence in the time of COVID, Asian Americans have been vaulted from invisibility to the center of the public eye. Yet Americans have been exposed to extraordinarily little information about who makes up the Asian American community. They do not know the immigration history of the many diverse countries and cultures of Asian American families. How is the story different for Japanese, Filipino, Chinese, Korean and South Asian people? Hear from five Storytellers directly as they share very personal, poignant, unsettling, and inspiring family tales about coming to and settling in America. The Showcase, emceed by Eleanor Clement Glass, will invite audiences to open their hearts and their minds to the unique experiences of diverse Asian communities that live in the United States today. Tracing the origin stories of their families and sharing the experiences of immigrating and integrating into American society, with all its complexities, will be the core of the Showcase. Uniquely, the tales will highlight different reasons for coming to America, different pathways, and the experience that is flavored by different regions of the country.
