Thursday, October 22, 2020 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Add to calendar

Learn more about the first wave of Chinese immigrants to the West Coast; the Chinese workers, merchants, wives, and families who built Portland’s Chinatown; racist reaction and violence leading to the passage of the   Chinese Exclusion Act; and the 70 year-long struggle for citizenship and acceptance as Chinese Americans. This 90-minute event features an illustrated "walk through" of the Beyond the Gate exhibition by the curator and museum executive director, Dr. Jackie Peterson-Loomis, and personal stories by three Chinese American elders who grew up in Chinatown between 1920 and 1950. A 30-minute Q&A with Dr. Peterson-Loomis, Bertha Saiget, Franklin Quan, and Kenneth Fong follows this fascinating program.
