“For Asian Pacific Heritage Month 2013, the Maynard Institute for Journalism Education website celebrates 31 individuals. One for each day of May.
The lives of these Americans are worthy of celebration and further study, which our short profiles hope to encourage. The women and men included are writers, editors, journalists, publishers, trailblazers and change makers. They remind us of the rich contributions Asian-Pacific Americans make and have made in the world of words.
This is by no means a definitive or exhaustive listing. It’s a starting point for learning, comment & discussion during Asian Pacific Heritage Month – May, 2013 when our nation pays a little more attention to issues of diversity. Be heard. Tell us what you think & what we can learn!
You can also visit previous year’s features here: Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month 2012 – A collaboration between the Asian American Journalists Association and the Maynard Institute for Journalism Education; Asian-Pacific Heritage Month 2011.”
