Throughout the month of May, KEXP is joining the national celebration of Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM). This is a time for all of us to reflect, pay homage, and celebrate Asian and Pacific Islanders in our country, and their amazing feats and contributions to our shared history. Observing this Heritage Month is even more vital given the increase in hate crimes and racism directed towards Asian and Pacific Isander Americans in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. In response, we’re amplifying the voices and art of the communities targeted by xenophobia, sharing stories and performances, and more, all month long. Tune in throughout May to hear DJs play songs from APA artists and revisit some of our archived content below, with even more content here.
