Stories of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders Across Time and Movements

In 2009, Asian Americans Advancing Justice–Los Angeles, and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Asian American Studies Center jointly edited and published Untold Civil Rights Stories, the first national guide of its kind for students, teachers, and communities. The guide was a unique educational partnership between one of the nation’s foremost advocates of civil rights and social justice for Asian Americans and others, and the nation's leading research center and department on Asian Americans. The book identifies and honors those individuals of Asian descent who were, and are, heroes in the struggle for civil rights and social justice. Untold Civil Rights Stories is the first educational textbook directed to US high school students, high school teachers and communities, on the role of Asian Americans in today’s civil rights and social justice struggles, before and after 9/11. Profiled in the book are Philip Vera Cruz, Lily Chin, the Ileto family, Beulah Kwoh, K. W. Lee, Fred Korematsu, Faustino Baclig, Amric Singh Rathour, and many others. The full text of each section of Untold Civil Rights Stories can be viewed online.
