Herstory - The Legal history of Chinese American Women Exhibition,1982 Vincent Chin’s murder was a hate-crime.

Due to the increasing sales of Japanese cars to the U.S., in 1979, many autoworkers in Detroit were laid off. Vincent Chin, then 27 years old, received racially charged comments and was beaten to death. Two perpetrators Ebens and Nitz received lenient sentencing in a plea bargain which caused public outrage. The case became a rallying point for the Asian American community. Ebens and Nitz were put on trial for violating Chin's civil rights.

Because the subsequent federal prosecution was the result of public pressure from a coalition of many Asian ethnic organizations, Vincent Chin's murder is often considered the beginning of a pan-ethnic Asian American movement. Christine Choy and Renee Tajima-Pena produced a documentary “Who Killed Vincent Chin?” and it was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature in 1987.

居蜜後來在國會圖書館工作35年,於2012年退休。
