Korean Politican Book Cover Image Final

We would like to announce the publication of a new bilingual book that we have been working on for the last two years. The title of the book is Korean Americans Who Have Empowered the Korean-American Community (재미 한인사회에 힘을 실어준 한인들), and it was co-edited by Pyong Gap Min (Director of RCKC), Thomas Chung (Editor/Web Manager at RCKC), and Young Oak Kim (Research Associate at RCKC). This book, which is published in one volume in both English and Korean, features biographical essays by 18 prominent Korean Americans, including politicians, administrators, and advocates. This edited collection of biographical essays, which was published by the Seoul-based Bookorea Publishing Company, is being distributed in Korea. We would like to give special thanks to Dongho Cho (Adjunct Professor of Sociology at Queens College) for translating all of the essays. We would also like to thank all of the esteemed contributors for taking time out of their hectic schedules to write essays for this book.

Although we have not yet determined a date and location, we plan on having a book release party in the Flushing area some time after our upcoming annual gala (which will be held on Thursday, September 25, 2014 in the Ballroom of the Queens College Student Union building, in case you forgot).

Those of you who live in the New York-New Jersey area can purchase the book at the release party or by contacting RCKC at

For those of you who live in Korea, you can either purchase the book at any major book store or online by clicking on one of the following links:
