The Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard lawsuit claims that Harvard discriminates against Asian-American applicants and argues for the end of race-based affirmative action as a solution. The lawsuit has been painful and divisive within and outside of the Asian Pacific Islander American community. Hear from experts about the stakes and prospects of the lawsuit, the future of affirmative action, and the role of Asian-Americans in advocating for racial justice.
