CHSA’s monthly Second Saturday on November 13, 2010 presents:
Honoring Him Mark Lai & His Roots Legacy is a special presentation of “The Dean of Chinese American History.” In 1991, Him Mark Lai founded the “In Search of Roots” program. Every summer, a group of interns between the ages of 17 to 26 years of age, embark on a journey to search for their ancestral villages in China after they have researched family & archival roots in the United States.
In honor of his memory during Him Mark’s birthday month, this November 13th program will feature special recollections from youth who were mentored by him. Touching, moving, and evocative, this program will highlight the lasting legacy of this dedicated historian on the next generation.
