This week, the New York Historical Society opened their groundbreaking exhibition“Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion”, about the centuries-long history of trade and immigration between China and the United States.With 300 historic objects dating back to the American Revolutionary era, it is one of the most comprehensive exhibitions on this theme. The "Exclusion" in the title refers to the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act, a federal law that banned Chinese from emigrating to the U.S. and restricted civil rights of Chinese immigrants who already lived here. It was repealed in 1943, but the effects lasted until immigration reform in 1965.
Over the last 2 years, I've been researching my family's immigration history and shared it with the NY Historical Society. It's been incorporated into the exhibition as a 12-panel graphic novel to show how many decades of discriminatory laws impacted 3-generations of a typical family like ours.
The show runs through April of next year.It is engaging, thought-provoking, and moving (and not just because I'm personally involved). Beyond its historical value, the exhibition raises important questions about present day immigration and labor policies and ideas about race and ethnicity.
