"Corky Lee's remarkable images demonstrate how crucial it is to make sure that Asian Amerians are seen, first and foremost, by themselves."

--Viet Thanh Nguyen, author of A Man of Two Faces

"What a fantastic celebration of both the documented and the documenter! To see Asian American history as it was made, and to feel the power of witness--this is the tribute to Corky Lee that he amply deserves."

--Gish Jen, author of Thank You, Mr. Nixon

"Corky Lee's Asian America... will change the way we look at American history."
