Event Description:
The traveling exhibit is presented by the Chinese Historical Society of America on the 125th Anniversary of the passage of the Chinese Exclusion Act. “Drawn from photographs, newspaper commentaries, political cartoons, and other objects in CHSA's collections, the Remembering 1882 exhibit provides a flavor for the intrigue, passion and poignancy of this dramatic chapter in American history.”

Did you know that, in 1852, Chinese people comprised 20 percent of the state's newly arrived population, and joined the Fourth of July parade in San Francisco that year? Come explore the impacts of the exclusion laws, as well as the struggles for equal protection, through the displays at this exhibit!
