APIDA Heritage Month Keynote Speakers: Fumi Abe and Mic Nguyen
Mar 28 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

In celebration of Asian Pacific Islander Desi American Heritage Month, the office of Multicultural Student Affairs and the APIDA Heritage Month Planning Committee proudly welcome comedians Fumi Abe and Mic Nguyen to campus!

Fumi and Mic met in the stand-up comedy scene four years ago, and soon started making short videos and writing sketches. And though they’ve continued performing on stage, they’ve brought their jokes to the airwaves with “Asian, Not Asian,” a comedy podcast where Abe and Nguyen talk about pretty much anything they want to.

Often, those topics are rooted in Abe and Nguyen’s experiences as Asian Americans. From Yelp reviews of Panda Express to the talking points of Asian American masculinity, Abe and Nguyen frame “Asian, Not Asian” as a podcast discussing “American issues no Americans seem to care about.” That is, except for Asian Americans.

Please join us on Thursday, March 28th, 2019 in the Witherspoon Cinema at 6pm to hear their stories and more!

Viet Night 2019 – River of Time (APIDAHM)
Mar 30 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Viet Night 2019 - River of Time (APIDAHM)

You know, there are crucial moments in life that we encounter in the past and present that have profound influences in our own identity. Culture, family, friends, interests, social norms, and the surrounding environment are some of the many factors that shape both our true and distorted identity. Only through perseverance can we achieve happiness, success, and a realization and acceptance of our true identity.

All right… that’s enough philosophical talk. It is now time to introduce to you all our upcoming annual cultural show of Spring 2019, Viet Night!

The Vietnamese Student Association at NC State would like to warmly welcome you all to its largest cultural event of this year! For this year’s show, let us take you back to a time of great transition and change. A time where every aspect of life, including core beliefs, cultural values, and lifestyles are challenged with the pressures of a new era. It is during this time where self discovery helps people learn to identify what matters most to them and how they will stay true to themselves while accepting the inevitable change of time. We want to show to you the beauty of Vietnam as it progressively integrates the new and modern cultural influence of the future while preserving the traditional core values of Vietnamese culture. Much like a flowing river, the passing of time will steadily lead us all to new challenges that will help us grow as people in preparation for the future.

The charm and elegance of Vietnamese culture will be displayed by various performances, such as traditional dances, songs, and skits. There will also be visual arts and traditional music that will show what makes Vietnam such a beautiful and classy country.

Viet Night 2019 will take place on Saturday, March 30th, in the auditorium (room 3400) in Nelson Hall, starting at 6:00 PM. This event is open to everyone and is FREE (that’s right), so come out, bring your family and friends along, and let’s have a good time!

APIDA Career Development Conference 2019: Breaking the Bamboo Ceiling (APIDAHM)

This year’s conference theme is “Breaking the Bamboo Ceiling” where we will be focusing on leadership, professional, and personal development of APIDA individuals as we step into our careers. The term “Bamboo Ceiling” was coined to address the barriers faced by many APIDA professionals in the workplace, which include but are not limited to: racism, under-representation, stereotypes and the model minority myth.

At the APIDA Career Development Conference, we hope to educate attendees on this topic and provide solutions to overcome these barriers. This one-day conference will be on April 6th, 2019 at Poole College of Management. The event is FREE and open to all individuals interested in the mission of our conference including students, professionals, and community members. Food will be provided to attendees.

The Hmong & The Secret War (APIDAHM)
Apr 11 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
The Hmong & The Secret War (APIDAHM)

Our history books write about the Vietnam War, but what people don’t know about is the Secret War that happened in Laos. In this Secret War, the CIA ask for help from the Hmong people. Some know about the Hmong, but many do not know about their role and hardships during the Secret War. This PBS Documentary explains how the Hmong fought, suffered, and left the life they once knew in the mountains to be here today.

“In 1961, four years before the Vietnam War, the CIA funded a Secret War in Laos. The Hmong became CIA’s surrogate army, fighting and preventing Communism from consuming the country of Laos. Watch as questions about the Secret War in Laos during the Vietnam War and the circumstances that brought the Hmong to America are explored.” —PBS

Triangle Area Asian Students Conference (TAASCON) (APIDAHM)
Apr 12 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Triangle Area Asian Students Conference (TAASCON) (APIDAHM)

Hosted by: TAASCON Planning Team & Asian Students in Alliance
The Triangle Area Asian Students Conference (TAASCON) is an free annual conference that occurs during the spring semester of the academic year. Primarily focused on the Triangle Area (UNC-CH, Duke, NC State), TAASCON has worked towards providing a safe space for asian americans to discuss and navigate their identity and narratives.

The theme for TAASCON 2019 is “Kaleidoscopic.” This theme draws upon the idea of a kaleidoscope as an object in which different colors, shapes, and patterns converge to create a multifaceted image. For this year, we emphasize the importance of recognizing the complexities in the Asian American community and aim to explore the multifaceted, sometimes fragmented experiences of being Asian American. Especially in the wake of a surge in mainstream Asian American visibility, we hope to shed light on who is being seen and heard and who is not. While many of us may have shared experiences,
no two narratives are the same. Our intersectional identities—gender, class, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and more—reflect different privileges and oppressions even within the Asian American community. Only when we come to piece together the puzzles of our own narratives do we begin to understand the shared struggles of all people in our communities and in other communities of color.

And only by accepting what makes us unique can we begin to relate to the spectrum of stories that others in those communities hold. Like a kaleidoscope that is always turning to transform the image inside, our communities are dynamic and ever-changing. We hope this year’s TAASCON inspires participants to be a part of that change in recognizing the complexity of identity and envisioning a more equitable world.
