History / Biographical Note
Linda T. Lee organized and photographed a series of Asian Awareness events on Pratt Institute's campus, March 20 and 22, 1971. Speakers and political activists were invited to speak on the Vietnam War and Asian hate activities in the US. The program came together with a community of Asian artists producing banners and flyers while Lee volunteered as program emcee. During the events, Lee also took photographs of the speakers, as well as crowd shots of students, professors and local activists. This collection consists of those photos, including images of Yuri Kochiyama and her family, Joanne Nobuko Miyamoto, and Chris Iijima.
