Separate lives, broken dreams: Saga of Chinese Immigration

Ed./Corp.: National Asian American Telecommunications Association & Jennie
Lew, San Francisco, CA, USA.
URL.: http://www.naatanet.org/separatelivesbrokendreams/
Language: English.

Self description: "The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 was a turning point in
American history. It is, however, one which seldom receives anything more
than a passing reference in most history books. The Act barred all Chinese
from U.S. citizenship by naturalization, and specifically excluded Chinese
laborers and their families from entering the United States. Immigration,
based on race and class, was now an official part of American public policy.
It opened the door to subsequent racially biased restrictions and outright
exclusion of other immigrant groups. SEPARATE LIVES, BROKEN DREAMS explores
the deep and broad impact that Chinese Exclusion had on individual lives,
families, and entire communities in America and China. As fears regarding
America's economy and security ebb and flow through our national
consciousness, public sentiment and politicians focus once again on new and
existing immigrants. One hundred twenty years after the passage of the
Chinese Exclusion Act, America continues to grapple with both its image and
the stark reality of all that is encompassed by its descriptor, 'the land of
immigrants.'"

Description: Stunning pieces of information and well documented archival
material. A must for research on Overseas Chinese in the US!

Contents: (1) Program information (information on 1993 TV broadcast in the
US: Synopsis; Crew bios; Charles Wong's letter; Judge Brazil's speech;
Statue of Liberty document); (2) Immigration documents (Individual case
files, incl. Sun Yatsen; NARA government documents; Researching at NARA);
(3) Exculsion (Anti-Chinese cartoons; MOCA - Chinese exclusion literature;
Bigler & Asing); (4) Glossary of terms; (5) Resources.

Resource suggested by Deike Zimmann, Hamburg, Germany.
