America and the Indo-Pacific: Perspectives from the Field

Wednesday, August 26, 2020 at 8:00 PM EDT - 9PM EDT

As Asia continues to move to the forefront of economic, political, and cultural influence in the global landscape, it is increasingly important to ensure underrepresented voices, particularly Black voices, are heard and at the table in U.S.-Asia discourse. Only when historically marginalized voices are included in the conversation can it be said the face of U.S. engagement with Asia is as diverse as the U.S. itself. America and the Indo-Pacific: Perspectives from the Field is a conversation with Ambassador Harry Thomas, one of the United States’ highest-ranking, Black diplomats to the Indo-Pacific, on U.S. relations with the Indo-Pacific–specifically South and Southeast Asia–and his diplomatic career in the region.
