On Tuesday, June 21, 2016, H+ | House of Chow hosted their inaugural event, H+ | House of Chow® Family Dinner {Asians in Hip-Hop} for BUFU EATS, where anything and everything taboo to say at an Asian dining table was entertained. ;) The evening’s menu was themed “Asians in Hip-Hop.”

Founder and Director Yvonne H. Chow shared her experiences growing up as a Chinese American, entering Hip-Hop, joining H+, and subsequently becoming the Education Director of H+ | The Hip-Hop Dance Conservatory. We learned about what it means for her to be an Asian American community leader in the Black and Latino American art form.

Participants then enjoyed a "Chinese Dinner Reclaimed" catered by H+ | Gastrünamy, the Culinary Division of H+ | The Hip-Hop Dance Conservatory. Big thank you to Chef Ryan Su.

A lively conversation sparked by Dumbfoundead's “Safe” covered a gambit of intersectional thoughts about the lack of Asian representation in the media, Asian female exotification, Asian male effeminization, gender dynamics between Asian males and females relative to relationships and dating, lack of cultural identity, and how exploring and deconstructing all these facets and more contribute to being an informed Asian (American) in Hip-Hop and Hip-Hop Dance.

Big thank you to Katherine Tom of BUFU Studios as a partner and space benefactor.
