Co-presented by the Brooklyn Historical Society.

Join in 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 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.
