Chinese in the Sunset: Exhibit Reception at SF Public Library
January 8, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join CHSA and the San Francisco Public Library at the Library Main Branch 3rd Floor (100 Larkin Street, San Francisco) for a reception celebrating CHSA’s new exhibit Chinese in the Sunset, a project about the lives of Chinese Americans in San Francisco’s outer Sunset District. Chinese in the Sunset illuminates the history of racial restrictions preventing Chinese and other people of color from living in the Sunset, how the 1960’s civil rights movement and subsequent legislation removed the restrictions, how social attitudes changed, and how different perspectives within the community has led the Outer Sunset to become a vibrant community today. The exhibit will be on display for three months in the Main Library, 3rd Floor, home to the San Francisco History Center.
Chinese in the Sunset is made possible by a grant from the Office of Supervisor Katy Tang and supported by the San Francisco Arts Commission, San Francisco Public Library History Center, UCLA Center for Neighborhood Knowledge, Western Neighborhoods Project, Recreation and Parks Department, and contributions from donors within the Sunset community.
