Maine Public Radio talk and performance by the Slants

Dear CAFAM members,

In May, CAFAM sponsored a performance by Asian-American dance-rock band The Slants, led by Simon Tam, at the Space Gallery in Portland. The band is known not only for their music, but for winning the right to keep the name of their band in a legal case that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Maine Public Radio will air the talk and performance: “Slanted: How an Asian American Film Troublemaker took on the Supreme Court,” on Sunday evening July 21st at 7pm.
