The Korean American Archives project seeks to document the daily lives of Korean Americans in Chicago. It was conceived in support of the Teaching Equitable Asian American Community History (TEAACH) Act, which mandates that Illinois public school students learn about Asian American contributions to the development of the United States. Join us for a panel discussion and a 20-minute screening by Man-Sung Son, a retired Columbia Film School professor and filmmaker. The film documents the Korean community in Chicago.

  • 11 am-12 pm – panel discussion about preserving Korean American history in Chicago
  • 12-12:30 pm – screening of 20-minute documentary about Korean Americans in Chicago

This project is a partnership between members and organizations of Chicago’s Korean American community, Chicago Public Library’s Archives and Special Collections Division and Young Park, a member of the Korean American community and manager of CPL’s Popular Library.
