Shelley Sang-Hee Lee (American Studies, Brown) discusses her latest book Koreatown, Los Angeles: Immigration, Race & the 'American Dream.'
Beginning with the early development of LA's Koreatown and culminating with the 1992 Los Angeles riots and their aftermath, Lee demonstrates how Korean Americans' lives were shaped by patterns of racial segregation and urban poverty, and legacies of anti-Asian racism and orientalism. Koreatown, Los Angeles tells the story of an American ethnic community often equated with socioeconomic achievement and assimilation, but whose experiences as racial minorities and immigrant outsiders illuminate key economic and cultural developments in the United States since 1965.
