Asian Pacific American Heritage Month on the World Channel

WORLD Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

Learn about the impact of Asian Americans, the fastest-growing racial/ethnic group in the United States by watching a series of programs this May on the WXXI World Channel

From the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 to the WWII internment of Japanese Americans, and now record-breaking representation in politics & pop culture, the experiences of Asian Pacific Islander Americans runs broad and deep in American history. People who once suffered, today fight for justice as heroes...opening doors for the next generation. This is reflected in the 40+ programs and films on WORLD Channel during Asian Pacific American Heritage Month in May.

WORLD Channel, in partnership with the Center for Asian American Media and Pacific Islanders in Communications, invites you to watch and join the conversation - like, comment, share - using the hashtag #MyAPALife.
