Gordon Chang, professor of history at Stanford University and this year's Los Angeles Times Distinguished Fellow, discuses the surge in anti-Asian violence during the pandemic and its roots in a long and often overlooked history.

The issue of anti-Asian violence hits close to home for many, making it a topic of significant relevance. Gordon Chang draws on from ongoing research into this troubling past. His work sheds light on the perplexing and sometimes bizarre misconceptions about race that have arisen from this historical examination.

This is the Los Angeles Times Distinguished Fellow Lecture.
