Geographies of Kinship Pre-Broadcast Conversation [online]
When: Sunday, May 14th at 6pm PST
African American soldiers stationed in South Korea during and after the Korean War were among the first U.S. citizens to adopt Korean children. Please join us on May 14th at 6pm PT / 9pm ET for a conversation exploring this little-known history and the eventual adoption of approximately 200,000 Korean children worldwide.
The event features Professor Kori Graves, whose book, “A War Born Family: African American Adoption in the Wake of the Korean War,” explores how Black American soldiers came to adopt Black Korean children, in conversation with Korean adoptees Dr. Estelle Cooke-Sampson, Lisa Jackson, and filmmaker Deann Borshay Liem.
This event precedes the national broadcast premiere of Geographies of Kinship, the award-winning documentary by Deann Borshay Liem, on public television’s America Reframed/WORLD Channel on May 19, 2022, 8:00 PM ET.
