You are currently viewing 1882 Foundation at GWU’s Mondays at the Museum

On April 2, 2018, at the George Washington University Museum “Mondays at the Museum” series, Ted Gong and the 1882 Foundation presented Penny Lee’s film, Through Chinatown’s Eyes: April 1968. The timing of this screening aligned with the week of the historic 50th anniversary of the civil unrest in the District following Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination. After the screening, the group, some of whom are regulars to the Mondays at the Museum series, asked engaging questions, both about the specific community tensions raised in the film as well as more general questions about the Chinese immigration to the United States and how the 1882 Chinese Exclusion acts fit in. Thanks to all who joined us for this event!
