The Cultural is Political: AAPI Timeline  

The AAPI Timeline is the newest project in a series produced by students to preserve people of color histories at Brandeis and featured on the Black Space Portal. Visit this new timeline to learn about the activities of the Asian American Student Association (BAASA), the Third World Coalition, and the work to establish Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander Studies at Brandeis. This project also features ten issues of the Eastern Tide literary magazine, which was one of the more prolific student organization publications. This timeline will be expanded over the summer to include a series of interviews with AAPI alumni.
