Please join CHSA as we launch our newest traveling exhibit, Chinese in the Richmond, the culmination of an oral history and research project about the lives of Chinese Americans in San Francisco’s Richmond District.
CHSA’s goal with this new traveling exhibit, Chinese in the Richmond, is to continue to shine a light revealing a historically under-reported and unstudied aspect of San Francisco history.
This companion exhibit to Chinese in the Sunset also delves into the story of early adopters who moved into western San Francisco earlier than is generally known. As mentioned in the Sunset exhibit, changing legislation, the civil rights movement, and social attitudes changed from restrictive to acceptance, and how different perspectives within the greater society have led the Richmond District to become a vibrant community today. We further hope the public will draw parallels with today’s national discussions of immigrant communities.
CHINESE IN THE RICHMOND is dedicated to Judy Yung and Alfred John Young. The exhibit is also supported by funding from the San Francisco Office of Economic and Workforce Development, a California Humanities, “Humanities for All” project grant.
