Virtual Tenement Tour – Changing Chinatown: The Wong Family Story

Event Location: Zoom, Registration Required

Cost: Free; Suggested Donation

In honor of AAPI Heritage Month, join us on May 21st for a special virtual program exploring the growth of Manhattan’s Chinatown community in the 1960s and 70s through the story of the Wong family.

Arriving in the Lower East Side in 1964, the Wong family’s story will shed light on the long history of Chinese immigration to the United States, and how changing immigration laws impacted the Chinese-American population. We will also explore the tenement apartment where Mrs. Wong raised her four children and the factory spaces where Chinese immigrant women revitalized the garment industry and labor movement in New York City.

Let us know you plan to attend!
