Tevis Tsai, a member of the Baltimore Ethical Society, will discuss the Model Minority Myth.  The Model Minority Myth asserts that Asian Americans excel because their cultural values and work ethic align with American ideals.  In this talk, Tevis will examine historical and modern issues that undercut this myth, and why this myth persists.
