The Chinese-American Experience in Albuquerque will explore how our city’s Chinese-American community came to be. The story includes immigration and its backlash which lead to anti-Chinese discrimination; the rise of the Chinese-American civil rights movement dating to the late 1800’s; Chinese American entrepreneurial spirit to gain an economic foothold in this country, and examples of how the Chinese American community has enriched Albuquerque’s diverse cultural tapestry through social, political, legal, educational and artistic engagement. This exhibit is a testament to our resilience, perseverance, determination and courage.
Presented in affiliation with the Chinese American Citizens Alliance
