If you have ever been around small children, you know that they have a very uncensored view of things. They are wide-eyed, open, curious and completely unjaded by life. For the most part, they have not yet been exposed to the harsh realities of racism, sexism and discrimination.
In East of Main Street: Small Talk, 37 Asian American kids from diverse backgrounds and ranging in age from 4-12 give their opinions on a variety of topics – their heritage and what it means to be Asian American, what sets them apart from other kids and what makes them the same, how they relate to their families and their grandparents, the languages they speak, favorite foods, customs, and their hopes and dreams for the future. The piece is filled with humor, sweetness and poignancy, and helps highlight just how insightful and intelligent children really are.
HBO® celebrates Asian Pacific American Heritage Month with this endearing special about what it’s like to be Asian American.
