Mr. Hyphen 2014

You voted. And now it's time. For the "Final 5" to rise and shine.

Thank you for your support for our elderly, Hyphen readers! As a follow-up, here's a list of community organizations serving AAPI elderly throughout the U.S. Please add more to the list if you can, and we'll continue to update it!

As part of our celebration of National Poetry Month, we offer you a second dose of Asian American poetry: "She Will Never" by Wing Tek Lum.

Mr. Hyphen 2013 dishes about his views on Asian American masculinity, strength in multiple identities, and his advice for Mr. Hyphen hopefuls. 

The Joy Luck Club seemed like a groundbreaking film for Asian Americans. Two decades later, it hasn't held up well.

For April's lit feature, we're happy to feature Cathy Linh Che's "Projector" -- a heartbreaking, tense poem that captures a child's helplessness.

What can we do to help improve the lives of the millions of “invisible” AAPI elderly in the U.S.?

An interview with Oscar Award-winning filmmaker Freida Mock Lee about her latest documentary on the Anita Hill and Clarence Thomas hearings, and the high profile and sometimes disturbing public discourse around sexual harrassment, race, and politics.

14-year-old California student Jason Fong shares how he personally benefits from student body diversity -- and why he supports SCA5 and other affirmative action measures.

Self-perception does not--and cannot--exist in a vacuum. It is only fitting, then, that Big Little Man, Alex Tizon’s comprehensive look at Asian American masculinity, bridges geographical, temporal, cultural and interpersonal boundaries in a seamless narrative about what it means to be not just an Asian American male, but a man in every sense of the word.
