“The Killing of Vincent Chin,” a trial reenactment @ UC Hastings SF

January 30, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


You are invited to “The Killing of Vincent Chin,” a trial reenactment.

A compelling narrative documenting a tragic crime, its prosecution, and the social movement that resulted, it has been staged nationwide to great acclaim.

It is the true story of a case that began with a brutal attack in Detroit in 1982 and which has become infamous as the single incident that led Asian Americans to organize as never before.

It will be performed by UC Hastings faculty, alumni, and friends. The Honorable Denny Chin, United States Court of Appeals Judge, and Chancellor & Dean Frank H. Wu appear as the narrators, and there will be a panel discussion afterward.

Co-sponsored by the Chinese Historical Society of America, the two performances will be:

Wednesday, January 30, 6 pm to 7:30 pm
Friday, February 1, 4 pm to 5:30 pm

Both performances are at University of California Hastings College of the Law, in the Baxter Appellate Law Center, 198 McAllister.

These events are free, but seating is limited.

You must RSVP to chinrsvp@uchastings.edu indicating the specific performance you would like to attend. Please feel free to forward this invitation to your networks.

Thank you.
