Program Description

Event Details

Through an exploration of a selection of primary and secondary sources about two Chinese Americans -- Kenneth Ang and Hazel Ying Lee -- participants will learn about the impact of race and gender discrimination in the past and be guided to make contemporary connections. In particular, participants will look closely at how the Chinese Exclusion Act affected would-be immigrants and Chinese Americans.

The Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) is an arts and cultural center dedicated to the experiences of people of Chinese descent in the United States. Located in Manhattan's Chinatown, its art and interactive exhibits help all students develop an understanding of Chinese American history and culture.
