Finding My Identity as a Vietnamese-born Chinese American – Amy Trang, PhD, 1882 Foundation

October 1, 2023 @ 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM EDT

Talk Story Events - Finding My Identity as a Vietnamese-born Chinese American

Following the theme of this year’s Chinese American Women in History Conference, 1882 Foundation senior team member, Dr. Amy Trang will share her story of “locating kinship across space and time” as a Vietnamese-born Chinese American. Dr. Trang will recount how, shortly after she was born, her family fled Vietnam as “boat people” to a refugee camp in Malaysia. Eventually, her family settled in the Washington, DC area where Amy began learning and understanding the various parts of her cultural identity, tracing her family lineage back to Guangdong and Fujian. Come engage in a discussion about how first-generation Chinese Americans can trace kinship across multiple generations and languages, as well as overseas.
