A Resource to Educate Students on the AAPI Experience

Karen Umemoto, professor of urban planning, was cited in a Rafu Shimpo article about a $10 million grant that the UCLA Asian American Studies Center received to create resources that teachers across the nation can use to educate students about the experiences of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI). “The textbook will be the most comprehensive, scholar-informed, online history of AAPIs that redefines the American narrative and opens unlimited possibilities for building a just, multiracial and democratic future,” Umemoto said. Coming in 2023, the online platform is designed to educate students about the history of racism toward AAPI communities. It will be adjustable to educators’ teaching styles as chapters can be stand-alone and modules will be customizable for different learning formats.
