"No-No Boy": Asian American History through Music, Princeton Public Library

Sunday May 16, 2021
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Julian Saporiti, the musician and scholar behind the "No-No Boy" project, joins library staff to watch, listen to and discuss his work connecting Asian American history to the present through song.

"No-No Boy" is an immersive multimedia work blending original folk songs, storytelling, and projected archival images to illuminate hidden American histories. Taking inspiration from his own family’s history living through the Vietnam War, as well as interviews with World War II Japanese Incarceration camp survivors and other stories of Asian American experience, Nashville born songwriter Julian Saporiti has transformed years of doctoral research at Brown University into an innovative project bridging a divide between art and scholarship.
