Prof. Diane Fujino's book featured in Esquire's 50 Best Biographies of All Time!

The Department of Asian American Studies congratulates Prof. Diane Fujino on her biography, Heartbeat of Stuggle: The Revolutionary Life of Yuri Kochiyama making Esquire's list of the 50 Best Biographies of All Time. From the article

Yuri Kochiyama is best known as the woman who held Malcolm X in her arms as he died in the Audubon Ballroom in Manhattan, but she was also “the most prominent Asian American activist to emerge during the 1960s.” Fujino’s biography traces Kochiyama’s life from her family’s experience in an internment camp for Japanese Americans to her advocacy for a variety of causes as an activist—some of which remain extremely controversial to this day, resulting in a remarkable story that will challenge you in every chapter.

Congratulations, Prof. Fujino, on this extraordinary recognition and continuing to being awareness to Asian American activism!
