Unlike today——where Asian American communities categorize “culture” and “politics” into different spheres of professional activity—in the late 1960s they did not divide them so rigidly or hierarchically. Writers, artists, and musicians were “cultural workers” usually closely associated with communities, and saw their work as “serving the people.” Like other community activists, cultural workers deﬁned the period as a “decisive moment” for Asian Americans—a time for reclaiming the past and changing the future.

Long Post: Today I am packing up my high school computer.
I received my first desktop computer in high school.
This 37 gigabyte giant dell deal. Named it “Hikari” because it felt like the light at the end of the tunnel. As a nerdy 13 year old I was excited to have a computer of my own, having spent years getting kicked off my parent’s. Theirs was old and slow and barely had a working soundcard, but this one was shiny and new. Shiny, new, and with Windows Movie Maker.
