Timeless Echoes: Viral Racism During & Before the Age of COVID-19

July 26 @ 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

The 1882 Foundation invites you to join us for the inaugural event in our Timeless Echoes series, a new program focused on providing historical perspectives on racism, racial justice, and Asian-American solidarities. Join Audrey Clark (English, USNA) as she examines the historical and discursive intertwining of the “Model Minority” and “Yellow Peril” stereotypes through the smallpox epidemics and anti-Asian violence of the 19th century. Audrey Clark, Janelle Wong (American Studies, UMD), and Adrienne Poon (MD, MPH) will then relate these enduring stereotypes to anti-Asian xenophobia and racism in the current pandemic. The panel will be moderated by community leader Yilin Zhang.
