The program will be live on Zoom and will feature a reading from Chinese American poet, Daryl Ngee Chinn; a look at the anti-Chinese exclusions and expulsions in Northern California by author-historian Jean Pfaelzer; and a panel discussion moderated by Ali Ong Lee about contemporary challenges facing the Asian community. Learn more about The Eureka Chinatown Project from organizer Brieanne Mirjah, and opt in to participate in a community conversation at the end of the program.
