California Historical Society is hosting this panel discussion, inspired by historic photographs of Los Angeles and San Francisco Chinatowns. These images envision, describe, and share a particular idea of what Los Angeles and San Francisco Chinatowns were. The panelists will address questions such as: How did these neighborhoods arise? What challenges have they faced and how have they survived? Moderated by U. C. Berkeley Professor Harvey Dong and featuring former AIISF Executive Director Eddie Wong as a panelist.
