On Saturday, April 13, 2019, the MinKwon Center for Community Action and the Research Center for Korean Community at Queens College co-hosted a screening of "Tracing the 30-Year History of the MinKwon Center for Community Action," a Korean-language documentary film produced by Mr. Chang Jong Kim, who is the photographer and videographer for RCKC, a prominent and prolific photographer for various media outlets and the Korean community in New York and New Jersey, and one of the organizers of Open Forum. This film screening took place at Global Leadership Foundation (GLF), located at 46-20 Parsons Blvd, Flushing, NY 11355. After the film was shown, there was a discussion and a question-and-answer session with Chang Jong Kim (the filmmaker), Pyong Gap Min (director of RCKC), and Ju Bum Cha (long-time and prominent staff member of MinKwon).

This documentary is the first in a series that RCKC initiated last year with support from Overseas Koreans Foundation (OKF) to document the history and issues related to the Korean community in the New York and New Jersey area. This is the first film in this series, and it is fitting that it details the 30-year history of this very important and active social service organization, which has not only helped and advocated for the Korean community, but also other marginalized and under-represented communities.
