Join SEEDS and OID for a guided tour of the Portland Chinatown Museum and a screening of Model Minority!
Join us for a guided tour of the Portland Chinatown Museum and a film screening of Model Minority! The award winning PBS documentary Model Minority: Do the Math by Teja Arboleda and Darby Li Po Price (2013) explores how the myth is a contradictory stereotype of Asian Americans as overachievers. While many believe the stereotype is positive, it causes many problems. Disproportionately tracked into math intensive fields by dominant expectations, parents, and advisors, many struggle to balance mental health and aspirations. The film addresses how the myth impacts Asian Americans across diverse backgrounds, viewpoints, goals, abilities, and needs. Dr. Darby Price will present the film, discuss, and answer questions after the screening.
