Importance of the Chinese Exclusion Act: Lessons for Today
Join BIMI on 22 February from 4.30-6.30 pm at Banatao Auditorium for a screening of the documentary 'The Chinese Exclusion Act'. This documentary documents the events leading to, causes of, consequences, and continuing impact of the only federal legislation in United States history ever to single out and name a specific race and nationality for exclusion from immigration and citizenship.
After screening the film, we will hold a panel discussion with Buck Gee (Board President of Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation), Leti Volpp (Director of the Center for Race and Gender and Professor of Law at UC Berkeley) and Catherine Ceniza Choy (Professor of Ethnic Studies at UC Berkeley).
