Presented as a part of SBTHP's "Sharing Our Common Ground" three-part summer film series, I Am Bruce Lee tells the story of one of the most iconic Asian Americans of the 20th century. The enormous impact he has had on entertainment as well as American and international culture is explored through interviews with some of the people who knew him best. Featuring rarely seen archival footage, classic photos, and cutting edge visuals and graphics, Bruce Lee is shown not just as an expert martial artist and entertainer, but as a man who challenged stereotypes and helped shape American consciousness.
During the late-nineteenth and twentieth-centuries the area in and around the Santa Barbara Presidio was occupied by communities of Chinese and Japanese, coexisting side by side in what was a unique and culturally rich neighborhood. In 2009, SBTHP launched "Sharing Our Common Ground" with a three-part community lecture series discussing the Asian American history in the Presidio Neighborhood and greater Santa Barbara area. SBTHP continues "Sharing Our Common Ground: Asian American History in Santa Barbara County" with a three-part summer film series focusing on Chinese, Japanese American communities.
