I Want To Go To School: The Case of Tape vs Hurley

October 12, 2013 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join CHSA for this panel discussion exploring the significance and legacy of the landmark 1885 case of Tape vs. Hurley, which challenged the San Francisco Board of Education’s decision to bar Mamie Tape from attending the District’s Spring Valley Primary School because she was Chinese. Featured on the panel will be Dr. Lonnie Chin, former Principal of Spring Valley Elementary School, Lisa Kwong, current Principal at Spring Valley, and CHSA Artist in Residence Charlie Chin, who has been commissioned to create a new museum theater work about Mamie Tape’s story.
