Rockin' the Boat is a photographic journey into the Asian American Movement from 1969 to 1974 by photojournalist Mary Uyematsu Kao. Never-before seen photographs help tell the story of the beginnings of Asian America. From immigrant demonstrations in Chinatown to Japanese American protests against Japanese imperialism in partnership with U.S. imperialism to visiting the Movement in Denver, Chicago, and New York City—Rockin' the Boat is a reminder that today's struggles are rooted in the history of U.S. imperialism.
