Cynthia Lin, Cornell University & the Celebration of Asian American women

Tuesday, April 22, 2008

Sounds pretty cool - I just wonder about the late date on the press release, because the 23rd is tomorrow:

ITHACA, N.Y. -- In recognition of Asian American Heritage Month, Cornell University will host an event focused on Asian American women's experience and achievement Wednesday, April 23, at 4:30 p.m. in the Robert Purcell Community Center.

The event will feature a performance by Chicago-born singer/songwriter Cynthia Lin,; a talk on the history of Asian American women by Cornell's Asian American Studies Professor Derek Chang; and a one-act play R.A.W.
