Vincent Chin’s headstone at Forest Lawn Cemetery, on May 9, 2022, in Detroit. Detroit is helping to honor Chin, a Chinese American man who was beaten to death 40 years ago by two white men who never served jail time. The commemoration comes as hate crimes against Asian Americans are on the rise in the U.S. The Vincent Chin 40th Remembrance & Rededication begins Thursday, June 16, and focuses on civil rights efforts that started with his 1982 death.
