Description

NOT YOUR MODEL MINORITY
More than ever the notion of the model minority should be called into question. With the whitewashing of Hollywood and gross under-representation in fashion and beauty, we need to stand up, speak out, and pound our fists on the table. Sophia Chang, a music business matriarch, will explain how she fights the Asian stereotype in every facet of her life.

Lunch will be provided.
