Asian Pioneer in US Journalism (Aull Center)

Join Aull Center staff in a discussion about Kyung Won Lee, West Virginia University (WVU) Graduate and Asian pioneer in US journalism. Lee went on from WVU to become the first Asian immigrant to be hired by a mainstream US daily newspaper (Kingsport Times and News). He also founded the first national English-language Korean-American newspaper in the United States (Koreatown Weekly) and the Korean American Journalists Association. This presentation is part of our Asian American Heritage Month video series.
