In acknowledgement of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

Racial stereotypes are all around us, too often shaping our assumptions about others and influencing the decisions we make. Few of us, however, pause to study their origins and question their validity. Join Dr. May Fu, from the Department of Ethnic Studies, as she deconstructs the Asian American model minority myth and situates it within a longer history of anti-Black racism and xenophobia. We will not only explore the power of racial stereotypes to shape ideas, interactions, and institutions, but also how to counteract them.

Bridges Academy is a continuing education program for those 55 and older. Join us for exciting lectures given by USD’s leading faculty. All lectures are held mid-week on the picturesque USD campus. While the lecture series is free to all participants, the Office of Planned Giving encourages the growth of the Bridges Endowed Scholarship fund, which awards merit-based scholarships to undergraduate students. We look forward to seeing you on campus!
