The Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) is known for their fantastic exhibits that really display what life in Chinatown is like and what it means to be Chinese in America. Check out this fantastic article in ChinaDaily USA about MOCA.
If you're interested in heading to this museum for an event, Thursday night is a great opportunity!
Join Herb Tam and Yue Ma, curators of Waves of Identity: 35 Years of Archiving, for a discussion on this exhibition that examines Chinese American identity through MOCA’s collection of photographs, personal letters, artifacts and oral histories. They will unpack the process of developing and organizing this exhibition as well as the role archive materials play in interpreting the history of a community. For more information, click here.
New York City was devastated after the 9/11 attacks and many people were affected. Chinatown was one of the neighboring communities from the World Trade Center and everyone was devastated. This year, join MOCA for panel discussion to reflect on the tragedy that changed our lives 13 years ago. This is a free event, but you must register.
