Join Us for Resisting Exclusion: Rewriting Narratives of the Chinese American Experience

Open to: Grades 7-12 Teachers in Social studies, English, Humanities,  Other School Support Staff, and Administrators
Opportunity at a Glance: In light of recent waves of pandemic-fueled Anti-Asian hate and violence that have swept the nation, join the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA), the Railroad Readers Workshop, and Associate Professor Mark T. Johnson in reflecting on Chinese American resistance in the face of exclusion.  Together, we will explore the impact of discriminatory exclusion-era legislation and the legacy of the rallying cry “The Chinese Must Go!”  We will also highlight the ways in which Chinese Americans resisted, protested, and defied these policies.

During this professional learning session participants will do the following:

  • Tour MOCA’s exhibitions;
  • Unpack primary sources about the Chinese American experience; and
  • Participate in hands-on activities.

Key dates:  Tuesday November 8 from 8:45a.m. – 3:30p.m.
Location: Museum of Chinese in America, 215 Centre Street, NY, NY 10013
Registration deadline: Friday November 4
