#Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month!

May is Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month.  As you know, the Chausiku Series is about 6 secret clans across the world with supernatural powers and the Qiáo clan is Asian.  So I thought that I would check out what my hometown, Chicago, is doing for Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month.  If you live in Chicago or are visiting this month, join us as we celebrate!

Linda Yu will host ABC7 presents Asian Influences and will focus on stories about Chicago's Pan-Asian community.  Beginning at noon today, May 18, through Friday, May 22, several cultural groups will perform at Daley Plaza for the 14th Asian American Festival so be sure to stop by Daley Plaza.  Columbia College Chicago's president, Dr. Kwang-Wu Kim was honored at the 2015 celebration at the Thompson Center where he served as the keynote speaker and ABC7 Chicago anchor Judy Hsu was the emcee.

Silk Road Rising celebrates Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month with this Salute Video.  Silk Road Rising creates live theatre and online videos that tell stories through primarily Asian American and Middle Eastern American lenses.  Performances are held at 77 W. Washington Street, Chicago.

On May 29, join the International House at the University of Chicago to celebrate with Tsukasa Taiko Performing Arts.

Events for all ages are being held by the following:
Families with Children from China-Chicago
Chicago ChinaTown chamber of Commerce
Asian American Coalition of Chicago
National Association of Asian American Professionals-Chicago Chapter
