“The Chinese Must Go!” Immigrants, Exclusion and the Vision of America

  • 10.02.17
    6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The passage of the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act was meant to mollify angry white workers in the West who believed that Chinese laborers were taking their jobs. Instead, it launched a punitive American policy of banning all immigrants of certain racial or national origins. What did this exclusion mean for the Chinese in Oregon and for the larger vision of America as a nation of immigrants? Join Dr. Jacqueline Peterson-Loomis, executive director of the Portland Chinatown History Foundation, for this presentation.
