Becoming Visible – Through Teaching AANHPI History

Becoming Visible – Through Teaching AANHPI History

“Education is the tool for creating a more humane and compassionate society.” Abby Weiss, Facing History

Over the past two years, increased incidents of violence against Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific islanders (AANHPI) are reminders of the group’s vulnerability in our country. These events have impacted many in the AANHPI community, and each of us has the responsibility to be part of the solution.

One solution is to teach Asian American history in schools to increase awareness and appreciation of the contributions and the struggles of Asian Americans in building our country. As of July 2022, nine states have statutes requiring AANHPI history curriculum in K-12 schools. Currently, Delaware has statutes requiring ethnic studies in the curriculum. In 2021, the state legislature passed a stand-alone bill requiring the teaching of Black History in schools. We need similar requirements for the inclusion of AANHPI history in the curriculum.

For this Peace Week Delaware event, we bring together a panel consisting of community leaders, parents, students and educators. They will share their experience and perspectives of AANHPI history education in Delaware. We hope you will join us for an informative talk and discussion. For more information:
