This is FYI, you may be interested in attending this event.
PBS's America Revealed, Hosted by Yul Kwon this April! (+meet him this week in Boston)
If you want to support Asian Americans in mainstream lead-roles during primetime, please be sure to check out America Revealed--learn about the systems that support American Transportation, Food and even the inner-workings of Facebook!…
America Revealed takes viewers through time, space and systems to reveal a nation of interdependent and intricately interwoven networks that feed and power the nation, produce millions of goods, transport people great distances and still come together to make America work. These networks all rely on vast, complex and precisely calibrated systems, yet most Americans have never had the chance to observe or understand them. Until now.
Meet the Yul Kwon Tues, 4/3 in Boston!
Yul Kwon, winner of "Survivor: Cooks Island," and current host of the upcoming PBS series America Revealed (premiering Wednesday, April 11th at 10pm on WGBH). Will be in town next Tuesday, April 3rd to host a preview screening at Northeastern University, in partnership with the National Association of Asian American Professionals-Boston, and WGBH.
