THE FORGOTTEN REVOLUTION
PROJECTS PART OF “PERPETUAL FOREIGNER”
The Forgotten Revolution: And the Lives of 6 Key Activists is an accordion book that chronicles the lives of 6 people — Larry Itliong, Grace Lee Boggs, Hisaye Yamamoto, Yuji Ichioka, Richard Aoki, and Helen Zia — during the Asian American Civil Rights Movement, a pan-Asian movement in the U.S. between the 1960's to the 1980's in which Americans of Asian descent came together to fight against their shared oppression to organize for recognition and advancement of their cause.
The front spreads show how these 6 activists as workers, organizers, revolutionaries, writers, teachers, journalists have rich lives that impacted the community forever. The back extends into a 9 foot continuous timeline that showcases the intersections of their lives.
