Levin College Dean's Forum: AsiaTown & The Asian American Experience

In celebrating Cleveland Asian Festival’s 10-year anniversary and National Asian Pacific Islander American Heritage Month, the Levin College has partnered with Cleveland Asian Festival and OCA-Asian Pacific American Advocates, Greater Cleveland Chapter to present AsiaTown and the Asian American Experience.

Ohio is home to over 238,000 Asian-Americans with almost 67,000 living in the Cleveland Metropolitan area and over 39,000 in Cuyahoga County. When the first Chinese arrived in Cleveland in 1870, Chinatown formed, relocated twice, and eventually evolved to our present day AsiaTown. For many years, AsiaTown remained a hidden gem that unveiled itself more widely in recent years due in part to the popularity of the Cleveland Asian Festival and the growing Asian Pacific American (APA) community. Regardless of where Asian Pacific Americans live, work, or play they have a connection with Cleveland's AsiaTown. Hear our diverse group of panelists talk about their own personal experiences, perspectives on AsiaTown, and the future of the APA community in Cleveland. 

This Levin College Dean's Forum is co-sponsored by the Levin College Dean's Diversity Council.

Thursday, May 16 at 4:00pm to 6:00pm
