March2 The 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom represents a pivotal event in the American Civil Rights Movement. By the 1960s, racial, social and economic unrest had reached a boiling point. As a result, a coalition of leaders from the "Big Six” and civil rights, labor and religious organizations planned a peaceful protest in Washington, D.C. in order to influence the federal government to end discrimination, provide the disadvantaged with opportunities for work, establish a $2.00-an-hour minimum wage and to grant self-government to the District of Columbia.

First Chinese American Book Cover ArtJoin us for a talk with Scott D. Seligman, author of The First Chinese American: The Remarkable Life of Wong Chin Woo, on Wednesday, June 5 at 7 p.m.

Chinese in America endured abuse and discrimination in the late 19th century, but they had a leader and a fighter in Wong Chin Foo, whose story is a forgotten chapter in the struggle for equal rights in America.
