The journal was established by editor-in-chief Lowell Chun-Hoon, publisher Don Nakanishi, and members of the Yale University Asian American Students Association. Chun-Hoon and Nakanishi were both seniors and members of Yale's Class of 1971. The first issue was released in March 1971. The journal was moved to the Asian American Studies Center at the University of California, Los Angeles, in July 1971, when Chun-Hoon became a staff member at the Center. It was a joint publication of the center and the Yale Asian American Students Association until 1973, when it became solely owned by the center. The current editor-in-chief is David K. Yoo (Asian American Studies Center).

According to founding publisher Don T. Nakanishi, the journal "has benefited from and reflected a wide array of profound social changes that have occurred among Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders—be it their unprecedented growth and diversification, or their ever-increasing levels of access, representation, and achievement in American society's institutions and sectors that had long excluded, marginalized, or demonized them."[1]
