Every year, the United States officially celebrates May as Asian American History Month, a chance to reflect on the experiences and important roles that Asian Americans have played in the nation’s history. This Learning Life quiz is a modest contribution to honoring and publicizing Asian American heritage, with a special focus on Asian Americans’ experiences in railroad construction, World War II, and the 1992 Los Angeles Riots.

Special thanks to Learning Life intern, Craig Gusmann, for conducting the research for this quiz, and drafting the questions and answers.
