Please join us for the November Talk Story event featuring Dr. Mae Ngai, a Professor of History at Columbia University, as she discusses her book, The Lucky Ones. Her research explores the story of the Tape family, led by Joseph and Mary Tape, during the post-Gold Rush era in San Francisco. They lived and prospered between the Chinese immigrant population and the emerging Chinese American middle class. Their daughter was central to the 1885 Tape v. Hurley case that dealt with school segregation.
November’s Talk Story Event gives you the opportunity to meet the author of this absorbing book and learn about the Tape family and their transition from Chinese to Chinese American.
Please join us for this fascinating talk about an extraordinary family.
We gather together to tell stories because the life of our community lies in the power of our stories remembered and shared.
