The Murder of Vincent Chin, A Trial Reenactment (Virtual)
In 1982, Vincent Chin was beaten to death in Detroit. Although the assailants pleaded guilty to killing Chin, they never spent a night in prison. This injustice galvanized the Asian American community. Join APABA South Florida as we re-examine Vincent Chin’s legacy in light of recent increased discrimination and violence against Asian Americans.
In a live virtual performance, a cast of attorneys and judges will re-enact the trial from a script created from the actual court records and transcripts.
This re-enactment is presented by the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of South Florida and co-hosted by our sister Florida APIA bar associations: the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Tampa Bay, the Greater Orlando Asian American Bar Association, and the Jacksonville Asian American Bar Association.
