Join a discussion about what it means to be Hapa. Once a derogatory
label derived from the Hawaiian word for “half,” Hapa has since been
embraced as a term of pride by many whose mixed racial heritage
includes Asian or Pacific Island descent. Kip Fulbeck photographed
more than 1,200 people from all walks of life who identify as Hapa -
from babies to adults, construction workers to rock stars, engineers
to comic book artists. The project is featured as a part of MOCA’s
core exhibition, With A Single Step: Stories in the Making of America.



Join Kip Fulbeck in conversation with Ken Tanabe, founder of Loving
Day, a global movement for a new holiday to celebrate the anniversary
of Loving v. Virginia, the Supreme Court decision that legalized
interracial marriage in the United States, in this program
co-sponsored by Brooklyn Historical Society and MOCA. Loving Day
fights racial prejudice through education and builds multicultural
community. This event is free and open to the public, thanks in part
to Target’s Free Thursday program at MOCA.



This event is part of the Brooklyn Historical Society’s Crossing
Borders, Bridging Generations, a public programming series and oral
history project about mixed-heritage families, race, ethnicity,
culture, and identity, infused with historical perspective. This
project is funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services,
National Endowment for the Humanities, New York Council for the
Humanities, Two Trees Management, Brooklyn Brewery, Sweet ‘N Low
Division of Cumberland Packing, Con Edison, and FHL Bank San
Francisco.
