Viewing of Dear Corky and Q&A with Director Curtis Chin
For over 50 years, New York native Corky Lee photographed his hometown's Chinatown, and Asian American communities around the country. With a strong sense of social justice, he captured activists, celebrities, and everyday heroes with equal passion, taking over a hundred thousand photos. Sadly, while documenting the latest rise of anti-Asian hate crimes, Corky fell to COVID. Through his own words and pictures, Dear Corky reveals the man behind the camera.
This 17-minute documentary screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director Curtis Chin.
This event is sponsored by the A&S Office for Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion along with the Center for Asian Studies.
