Asian American History at UCLA

Asian American Heroes and Pioneer Bruins
The story of UCLA has been written by 100 years of brilliant, diverse and determined students. Between 1919 and 1945 Asian American students at UCLA blazed a trail of achievements, fighting against policies of marginalization and discrimination, even internment. While many details of these individual lives have been lost to history, stories have been recorded of Bruins who created opportunities at UCLA and beyond.
