Sandra Oh Celebrates APA Heritage Month

To celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, the Asia Society has joined with YouTube in a callout initiative asking people everywhere: “What does being Asian American mean to you?”

Sandra Oh, Senator Daniel Inouye, Kal Penn, George Takei and others have recorded and posted their own personal thoughts for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month through the Asia Society, which has launched this video campaign to collect stories from Asian Americans throughout the month.

Sandra Oh talks about Asian Americans in entertainment and the importance of seeing ourselves reflected in media. Hear her personal story and that of her family.

The Asia Society invites and encourages all APIs to post their own response videos on what being Asian American means, with a brand new iPod Nano being the ultimate prize for the best response.
