In this session, participants will explore the influences and contributions of Asian American and Pacific Islander communities in U.S. History from the 19th through mid-20th centuries.
Utilizing materials from the New-York Historical Society’s free curriculum guides, “Women & the American Story,” “Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion,” and “Our Composite Nation: Frederick Douglass’ America,” we will reflect on the importance of amplifying the resilience and strength of AAPI communities in a variety of learning spaces.
