In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, we’re revisiting some of the touching human stories we collected from our 2014 exhibition Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion. The exhibition explored the complex history of the Chinese in America and the themes of immigration, citizenship, and belonging that shaped the Chinese American experience.
To complement the exhibition, we highlighted the stories of the lives, achievements, culture, and rich diversity of Chinese American families. We asked the public to share their experiences with a personal story and photo. Explore a few of them below and on our Instagram.
