Book Recommendations: AAPI Heritage Month
We're celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month! Dating back to 1979, where a Presidential proclamation was made by President Carter that May 4th would be the start of the Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Week. That week would celebrate the contributions made to American society and culture from Asian/Pacific Americans. In May 1990 that week was extended to a full month of acknowledging the contributions from Asian/Pacific Americans to arts, entertainment, science, and government and commerce.
