Relive Life Under the Chinese Exclusion Act
May 8, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
With a history of over 160 years, Chinatown is one of NYC’s oldest neighborhoods. Experience Chinatown through the intimate lens of the Chinese Exclusion Act, the first U.S. law that banned an entire ethnic group from coming into this country for more than 60 years. Through our immersive tour, you’ll discover the dark origins of the neighborhood, hear stories of assimilation and sacrifice, and learn about the challenges that Chinese-Americans continue to face in pursuit of the American Dream.
Whether you’ve come to Chinatown for years or it’s your first time, you’ll walk away with a deeper understanding and appreciation of this storied neighborhood.
