This past year, we launched our 50th Anniversary activities with a successful two-part symposium on Asylum and Deportation and the book launch of Mountain Movers, along with a summer reunion of original founders of the Asian American Studies Center. In the fall, we co-sponsored an exciting two-day conference to renew the ties between town and gown with the "Power to the People" conference that featured 55 speakers over a spread of issues of concern to our communities. Please enjoy recaps of and reflections on these commemorative activities and more within the latest issue of CrossCurrents.


We will continue the 50th Anniversary celebration this spring 2020 with IMAGE MOVERS, a three-weekend film festival in March sponsored in partnership with UCLA Film and Television Archive, Melnitz Movies, and the Center for EthnoCommunications and in collaboration with Visual Communications, Film Quarterly, and UCLA Asian American Studies Department. The aim is to reach a broader audience with thought-provoking films, old and new, that resonate with current issues today. We will also highlight our "50 for 50" fundraising campaign so that we can complete 50 oral histories of Asian American Studies founders by the end of our 50th anniversary celebrations. We hope you can join us in these and other activities.
