The Chinese Historical Society of America (CHSA) seeks your support for its installation of Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion (CAEI), the national exhibition created by the New-York Historical Society. CAEI, the largest and most comprehensive exhibition on Chinese America to date, explores the centuries-long history of immigration and trade between America and China. This is a history that has shaped the Chinese American experience and the formation of American society. This is a history that tells the stories of courageous men and women who fought against the Chinese Exclusion Act. This is a history that has tremendous relevance to our world today.
About Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion (CAEI)
Supported in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, CAEI is the largest and most comprehensive exhibition about the experience of Chinese in America to date. According to the exhibition prospectus, CAEI “immerses visitors in a broad sweep of history, presenting key protagonists and signal events, while also creating compelling spaces that present stories and micro-histories and other layers of objects, documents, and media for discovery.” Included with the exhibition is an educational curriculum designed to meet national content standards. As such, CAEI elevates the quality of the visitor experience at CHSA to an international standard that will make us all proud. Click here for an exhibition preview >
