SD NEIGHBORHOODS: The Chinese Immigration Experience in America and SD Chinese Historical Museum

Kathleen Shiu-Yee Dang

This lecture discusses the journey of early Chinese emigrants who fled warfare and famine in the declining Qing Dynasty to come to the U.S. During this early period, they labored under discrimination and exclusion, and San Diego’s Chinatown was formed. Subsequent generations of Chinese Americans served in WWII and later waves of immigration followed after the repeal of the Chinese Exclusion Act in 1943. This lecture will discuss San Diego's Chinatown as the first immigrant neighborhood in San Diego, and serves as a prelude to our Osher visit to the San Diego Chinese Historical Museum and a guided walking tour of historic Chinatown on Saturday, November 18.

Instructor: Kathleen Shiu-Yee Dang is the Education and Events Coordinator for the San Diego Chinese Historical Museum. She is a Master's of Education candidate at National University, seeking her California Teaching Credential in Social Studies and History.
