The Chatham Square Branch of the New York Public Library is showcasing a new “HERSTORY” exhibit during the month of October.
This exhibit spans 165 years of the struggles and successes of Chinese-American women; on display include rare photographs and documents from legal cases fought in supreme courts throughout the US.
The exhibit is a fascinating look at the ordinary people who fought for their rights, and, in doing so, helped shape a new world for Chinese-Americans in the United States. The exhibition is provided to the library by Dr. Chang C Chen (邱彰博士), who has worked tirelessly to document the written legal history of Chinese-Americans.
It opened Wednesday and runs through October 31. More info is available here.
