Vincent Who? Screening


Come to the screening of the powerful documentary Vincet Who? This movie tells the story of the Vincent Chin murder and the historical importance it has on the Asian Community.

Chin was a 27 year old Chinese-American who was beaten to death with a baseball bat by two Detroit autoworkers, who had mistakenly thought that he was Japanese. The lenient sentence handed down to the killers (no jail time, $3790 fine and 3 years probation) ignited a national protest and marked the beginning of the AAPI civil rights movement.

Admission is FREE and refreshments will be provided.
November 4th, 6:30pm
Plaza Building M204
University of Denver - Auraria Campus
(Auraria Parkway and Speer Blvd)

There will be a Question and Answer session immediately after the screening with
Producer Curtis Chin.
