Summary
"During the 1970s when Asians in America were invisible to the country--and more importantly even to themselves--the late Chris Iijima's music provided the voice and identity an entire generation had been in search of. Through animated photographs, intimate home movies, archival footage and Chris' own songs, A song for ourselves shows how Chris' music unleashed the contagious energy of the Asian American movement with an unrelenting passion for social justice and a life well lived."--Container.
