Working Women: Chinese Immigration, Activism, and the growth of Chinatown in 1970's New York City

by  Tenement Museum

Program image

This program features a Chinese American family and their 1970’s tenement home. Students learn about the push and pull factors of Chinese immigration and the long history of laws that restricted Asian immigration, beginning with the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act. Through exploration of a recreated apartment and garment shop, students will examine how the Wongs made a home in a growing Chinatown. Video interviews and family and neighborhood photographs will allow students to consider how different generations of the family navigate language, schooling, media, and work leading students to consider how they themselves form their own senses of identity and belonging.
