In this Article, I urge socio-legal scholars who identify with the multiply diverse, yet racialized ethnic groups of the contemporary United States to collaborate in the cultivation of critical ethnic legal histories-stories about our communities' centurial, complexly interwoven, and transnational pasts-from which we may distill socio-legal insights for today's social justice struggles. In particular, this project accords with and furthers what Eric K. Yamamoto and others have theorized as "interracial justice" (i.e., a hard acknowledgement of the past and present ways that racialized ethnic groups harm one another, coupled with new efforts to redress intergroup grievances by rearticulating and restructuring their relationships today).
