FROM A WHISPER TO A RALLYING CRY The Killing of Vincent Chin and the Trial that Galvanized the Asian American Movement

by | Read by Catherine Ho

Young Adult Ages 14+ • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Catherine Ho deftly guides listeners through the complex web of events and legal actions surrounding the 1982 death of Vincent Chin. The young Chinese-American man was beaten with a baseball bat following an argument at a bar. After the defendants received probation and a fine, the case was taken up as a potential hate crime by a wide coalition of Asian-American justice advocates. Ho excels at re-creating the emotional testimony and firsthand recollections of those involved in the case. She also maintains the author's commitment to listening to all sides and getting to the bottom of what happened. The narrative sags a little near the end, and the production doesn't provide access to photos or citations, but otherwise this audiobook is excellent.
