Join us for the second of a series of discussions about the PBS documentary “Asian Americans”. Attendees should watch the second episode prior to the discussion (details on where to view it are below). During the event, we will share clips from the episode and discuss thoughts and ideas we had while watching.
As described on the official website: Asian Americans is a five-hour film series that delivers a bold, fresh perspective on a history that matters today, more than ever. As America becomes more diverse, and more divided, while facing unimaginable challenges, how do we move forward together? Told through intimate and personal lives, the series will cast a new lens on U.S. history and the ongoing role that Asian Americans have played in shaping the nation’s story.
For the second episode, the documentary looks at the challenges of dealing with identifying with being born in the U.S. and the identity of one's parents: An American-born generation straddles their country of birth and their parents’ homelands in Japan and Korea. Those loyalties are tested during World War II, when families are imprisoned in detention camps, and brothers find themselves on opposite sides of the battle lines.
We hope you will be able to join us for this discussion - all are welcome. This is the second of a series of events, so check back for future dates when we discuss the other episodes.

Join our Progressive Caucus Book Club as we read this month's selection, "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian" by Sherman Alexie
Bestselling author Sherman Alexie tells the story of Junior, a budding cartoonist growing up on the Spokane Indian Reservation. Determined to take his future into his own hands, Junior leaves his troubled school on the rez to attend an all-white farm town high school where the only other Indian is the school mascot.
Heartbreaking, funny, and beautifully written, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, which is based on the author's own experiences, coupled with poignant drawings by Ellen Forney that reflect the character's art, chronicles the contemporary adolescence of one Native American boy as he attempts to break away from the life he was destined to live.

Join us as we opt outside on Saturday, November 27, for a hike through the beautiful Sächsische Schweiz National Park. We will meet in Rathen before heading up to Basteibrücke through the picturesque sandstone mountains. After some time exploring the history and geography around Basteibrücke, we will continue through the forest to Stadt Wehlen before looping back to Rathen along the Elbe. As we hike, one of our Dresden-based members will be passing along tidbits about the history, archaeology, art history, and geology of the area!
In total the hike will cover approximately 9 km with a steep incline [stairs] to start off the journey. We will meet at the Rathen railroad stop at 10:00 on Saturday, November 27, and then together take the ferry across the Elbe. Besides your travel to and from Rathen, you will need €2 for the ferry, a packed lunch or lunch money, and of course water! We are suggesting a donation of €10 to help support the ongoing work of DA Germany. Hikers of all ages are welcome!
