“I remember Warren Furutani absolutely blowing away a crowd at a rally in Harlem who had never heard an Asian American speak so powerfully, and I recall feeling very proud at that moment.” –Chris Iijima, in “Pontifications on the Distinction between Grains of Sand and Yellow Pearls,” ASIAN AMERICANS: THE MOVEMENT AND THE MOMENT, eds. Steve Louie & Glenn Omatsu
