Tonight we air part two of a special series honoring the life and legacy of civil rights leader, activist, and Asian American movement pioneer, Yuri Kochiyama.

We share with you Yuri’s thoughts on African and Asian solidarity across the globe, her intimate recollection of Malcolm X’s murder, and we also hear more from the youth and the up and coming generations that she has inspired.

Tune in tonight for:

  • A rare interview from the Pacifica Radio Archives recorded in 1972, where Yuri shares her memories of the day Malcolm X was assassinated
  • Tributes from youth leaders from AYPAL (Asian Pacific Islander Youth Promoting Advocacy and Leadership)
  • An interview with Adriel Luis, curator of digital and emerging media at the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center and creator of Folk Hero, an online exhibit featuring art that celebrates Yuri’s life through grassroots art
  • A sharing from Yuri Kochiyama’s daughter, Audee Kochiyama-Holman, about what it was like to grow up in the Kochiyama household
