Event Details

This program gives an in-depth look at the decisions behind and the consequences that followed the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, which barred Chinese from emigrating to the U.S. for 87 years. Personal interviews and archival footage illustrate how families were either kept together or tragically torn apart, and how this affected generations of Chinese and Chinese Americans. Inclusion Day is celebrated on December 17.

Co-sponsored by the Friends of West Hollywood Library. Complimentary refreshments will be provided.
