With the clarity of 20/20 hindsight, we can actually pinpoint the moment in time that gave birth to the Asian American civil rights movement. It was the beating and subsequent death of 27-year-old Vincent Chin, a Chinese American who lost his life in 1982, though the two white autoworkers got off with a probationary hand slap and a $3,000 fine. It's Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, which means it's a good time to revisit the documentary, Vincent Who?, and discuss the broadening of federal civil rights protection.
