Join American Experience for a virtual conversation on America’s history of discrimination against Asian Americans. Featuring clips from American Experience’s documentary The Chinese Exclusion Act (AMEX 2909), the discussion will explore the experiences of Chinese immigrants when arriving in the U.S. in the mid-19th century. It will examine how anti-Asian sentiment has continued into the present day, and discuss ways that the AAPI community, their allies, and elected officials can work to put an end to racial violence and discrimination.
