Activism Excursion: The Power of Representation

Hailed by some as a watershed moment for Asian representation in Hollywood, Crazy Rich Asians was this summer’s breakout -- albeit controversial -- hit. Now, New York Times reporter Sarah Maslin Nir sits down with comedian Ronny Chieng, who played Eddie in the film and also serves as a senior correspondent on The Daily Show. They will be joined by Congresswoman Grace Meng, who represents much of Queens, and is the first Asian-American member of Congress from New York State. In this latest edition of Only in New York, Meng and Chieng join Nir for a conversation about their individual journeys -- and the growing power and presence of Asian Americans in national politics, media, and culture.  

When: Wednesday, February 20, 7:30pm – 8:30pm

Where: Museum of the City of New York, 1220 Fifth Ave at 103rd St.
