Remembering the Chinese American Pioneers

china town 3 14 18Marysville, Ca.

A new committee has been formed to preserve the history of the Chinese American pioneers. The committee members first met in 1968 during the founding of the Asian American Political

Alliance (AAPA). Among the goals of AAPA were the creation of Asian American Studies programs to teach our history and organizing our communities. Now, after half a century, we feel it is time to take a look at whether we met the goals we set for ourselves and what steps we need to take in the future for new goals in the next half a century. We have organized, in partnership with the Chinese American Museum of Northern California (ChineseAmericanMuseum.com), a conference with Chinese American historians and civil rights leaders to discuss the preservation of our history. The conference will be held during the annual Bok kai Festival in Marysville, Ca.

Day one will focus on what has been accomplished in Chinese American history and community organizing. Day two is an organizational meeting for a Chinese American community network.

Day One Schedule: March 17, 2018, 1:30 pm to 5:00 pm. At the Yuba County Library, 303 2nd Street, Marysville California Tickets: $10. http://bit.ly/pioneerweekend Dinner: March 17, 2018 6 pm to 8 pm Szechwan Restaurant, 223 lst Street, Marysville, CA
