The New York Historical Society Museum and Library will be hosting a Chinese American Exclusion Inclusion exhibition this September. In the meantime, click here to share your story with Chinatown on growing up Chinese in America.
According to the website, “The exhibition begins in the 18th century with tea at the heart of The Boston Tea Party that was imported from China. Today, more than 700,000 Chinese Americans call the grater new York region home, and throughout the United States, Chinese Americans are one of the fastest growing ethnic groups. To illustrate the New York Historical Society’s unprecedented exhibition, we are highlighting the stories of the lives, achievements, culture, and rich diversity of Chinese Americans. We invite you to share your experience with a personal story and photo today. Some of your submissions may be featured in the exhibition and online.” Share your story today!
