Talk: DC’s Historic Chinatown
January 12 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Our director, Ted Gong, will speak on issues of gentrification and preservation in DC Chinatown at this event hosted by Palisades Village. He will discuss the inspiration for the Foundation’s creation, and its reference to the only Federal statute to specifically and totally exclude immigrants of a particular ethnic/cultural heritage–the Chinese. He will address the history of DC’s Chinatown and its continuing evolution via the “Chinatown Off H Street Project,” and a related project at DC’s Congressional Cemetery.
