Welcome to Episode 30 of the Asian American History 101 podcast! Happy Memorial Day! As we honor the military personnel who died in various wars and conflicts, Gen and Ted discuss the history of Asian Americans in the military from the beginning through WWII. We also take time to provide a definition for “gaslighting” in a new segment called Terms You Should Know. We reference Jennifer Li’s article on being racially gaslit. Want to learn more?
