My Asian-American Awakening: Realizing that I am a Person of Color

Link Posted on Updated on

My Asian-American Awaking: Realizing I am a Person of Color comments on Connie Zhou’s article ” “The Asian-American Awakening: That Moment You Realize You’re Not White,” and how are Asian-American identities are shaped. Mine discusses the opposite side of the spectrum, instead of realizing that I am not white, it elaborates on the complexities of “Am I a Person of Color?” It highlights how Asian-Americans are perceived to be white, while also not being considered People of Color. The “Yellow Power” movement was a moment of clarity for my Asian-American identity as it showed solidarity of Asian-Americans with other communities of color during the Civil Rights Era.
