The Center for Korean American Culture(CKAC) is a Flushing, Queens based, grassroots, community, non-profit cultural organization. Founded in 1990, CKAC was born out of the need and desire of young people of Korean heritage living in New York City to create a cultural group that reflects our experiences; provides a space for us to struggle with the meaning of being Korean American in the United States in the 1990s; and share our knowledge, creativity, and talent with the larger society.
It is our mission to engender within young Korean Americans a pride in their heritage and their capacity to contribute to society, to provide a cultural voice, to promote a progressive awareness, amongst Korean Americans and within non-Korean communities, of Korean American Culture. Our primary means to that end are Poongmul (Shinmyung Pae) and special projects like the Korean American Film Festival (KAFF) and 4.29 (referring to April 29 1992 L.A. incident) Commemoration Event.
