Frank H. Wu, author of the critically acclaimed “Yellow: Race in America Beyond Black and White” and former Chancellor & Dean of University of California Hastings College of the Law, will speak about the many versions of the Asian American experience. He will challenge the stereotype of the model minority and the perpetual foreigner, explaining how Asian immigrants and their American-born descendants can write the scripts of their own lives. His talk will include advice for breaking through the “glass ceiling.”
Before joining UC Hastings, Professor Wu was a member of the faculty at Howard University, the nation’s leading historically black college/university (HBCU), for a decade. He served as Dean of Wayne State University Law School in his hometown of Detroit, and taught in various roles at Michigan, Columbia, Stanford, and Peking University School of Transnational Law. In April 2016, he was elected by the members of Committee of 100 as their Chair.
