Notes

Description
"There are 23 million people, representing more than twenty countries, each with unique languages, histories, and cultures, clumped under one banner: Asian American. Though their experiences are individual, certain commonalities appear. The pressure to perform and the weight of the model minority myth. The proximity to whiteness (for many) and the resulting privileges. The desexualizing, exoticizing, and fetishizing of their bodies. The microaggressions. The erasure and overt racism. Through a series of essays, poems, and comics, thirty creators give voice to moments that defined them and shed light on the immense diversity and complexity of the Asian American identity. Edited by CAPE and with an introduction by renowned journalist SuChin Pak, My Life: Growing Up Asian in America is a celebration of community, a call to action, and a road map for a brighter future."--publisher's website.
