The Roots of Anti-Asian Hate in America

Join American Experience for a virtual conversation on America’s history of discrimination against Asian Americans. Featuring clips from American Experience’s documentary "The Chinese Exclusion Act," the discussion will explore the experiences of Chinese immigrants when they arrived in the U.S. in the mid-19th century, examine how anti-Asian sentiment has continued into the present day, and discuss ways that the AAPI community, their allies, and elected officials can work to put an end to racial violence and discrimination. #StopAsianHate
