Exploring the Asian Diaspora: "Nailed It"
8:30 am to 12:00 pm

Sponsored by:
Asian Studies Center

Nearly two million Vietnamese immigrants escaped to the United States in the aftermath of the Vietnam War, many of them prospering in America's $8 billion nail economy. Join us as we explore this topic with a screening of the film documentary, "Nailed It," followed by a panel discussion with members of Pittsburgh's Vietnamese community on the enduring economic entrepreneurialism of 20th & 21st century Vietnamese immigrants to the United States, and a K-14 educator workshop on how to utilize digital storymapping in the classroom.
