Peter Yew police brutality protest, 1975 (c) Corky Lee, All Rights Reserved.


Following the Chinese Exclusion act of 1882, Congress passed the Geary Act, a law which required every Asian to carry a photo ID card – a practice with roots in slavery. In response, thousands of Chinese in the U.S. organized to protest this discriminatory law and many others that followed.


Join us in unpacking the history of race and exclusion in America and discover how Asian Pacific Americans have confronted injustice and fought for equality, ultimately making major contributions to American Civil Rights.
