Race, Color, and Citizenship: Ozawa and Thind In the 1920s



The Asian Affinity Group at White & Case invites you to join us for a reenactment of Ozawa v. United States and United States v. Thind, two important U.S. Supreme Court cases in Asian American history dealing with issues of race, color, and citizenship. At a time when U.S. naturalization laws dictated that only free white persons and persons of African descent could qualify as United States citizens, two individuals of Asian descent sought to challenge the definition of what it means to be American. This reenactment was developed by members of the Asian American Bar Association of New York, including the Honorable Denny Chin of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Judge Chin will be joining us for the presentation and delivering remarks. Members and friends of the Asian Affinity Group will be participating in the reenactment. 

Should the event be oversubscribed, names will be placed on a waiting list on a first-come, first-served basis.

A cocktail reception will follow the program.
