2a History of Boston’s Chinatown
We will have a panel discussion of the history of Boston’s Chinatown. Boston’s Chinatown has a long and storied history and has woven itself into the fabric of the city. It was not done without some civil rights challenges for the AAPI community in Boston. If we take a look at history we can better understand today. We will also take a look at the civil rights situation now in Boston and take a look toward the future.
