Asian Story

The railroad stretched from the West Coast to the East Coast, and 15,000 to 20,000 Chinese immigrants were a major part of its construction, according to Initially, construction superintendent James Strobridge deemed the immigrants unfit for the job. But the railroad needed workers, and many white people weren't interested.

I am guessing you all are here at this event because you are curious about the story of a North Korean defector. When we become adults, we have the freedom to make choices. However, there are only a few choices individuals have in North Korea.

We want to know more about you. Did you come here as a student and stay to build a life Were you brought over on an H-1B to fill a position Did you come to join family, or did you bring yours from your country of origin Help us tell the story of Asian American immigrants by sharing your or your family member's story.

I shared that Kennett has a lot of history with immigration. The Germans helped the Quakers grow their carnations and roses. Then there was the development of mushrooms as a cash crop, and it was the Italians that came over. I grew up in Kennett where the Piacentino cousins had a bet between them for a pack of cigarettes. They would owe the other a pack if during the working day, they spoke Italian. Everyone learned English, but they spoke Italian at home.

The conference was writing a book on immigration and asked me to write the chapter on how important immigration was to Kennett. I came home and found someone who knew Kennett better than I did, Joan Holliday, and we went about finding that story.

One thing I have learned about immigration is that almost all of us immigrated to American at one time in our past. There is no one story of immigration. Do you know about the Jewish merchants who came to State Street and ended up keeping us in eyeglasses for generations, or mushroom pickers from Italy and Mexico, or Greek and Chinese restaurant owners If you do, then you know each story as being unique.

One story that I love, and it always brings a smile to my face is the story of Tony and Suki Liu. They are from Fujian China, and Tony came to New York City to become a Sushi Chef. After 2 years he brought his wife over and they eventually ended up in Philadelphia. They quickly became a family of four.

Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have a rich heritage thousands of years old and have both shaped the history of the United States and had their lives dramatically influenced by moments in its history. Every May during Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month and throughout the year, the National Park Service and its partners share those histories and the continuing culture thriving in parks and communities today.Visit the site

Since 1990, the U.S. government has designated the month of May as Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, celebrating the achievements and contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) in the United States. This Teacher's Guide offers a collection of lessons and resources for K-12 social studies, literature, and arts classrooms that center around the experiences, achievements, and perspectives of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders across U.S. history.

On Oct. 19, 2019, Nguyen put on a rear admiral's star, making him the first Vietnamese American to attain flag rank in the U.S. Navy. That October day was a far cry from his roots as a boy in the 1960s, growing up in the South Vietnamese city of Hue at the height of the Vietnam War. His is a story of personal loss and adversity and the resilience he found in himself through serving his adopted country.

And Stephenson presents the stories for a clear purpose: they join a growing body of studies and other cultural products that challenge, reconfigure, and even upend established orthodoxies about the boundaries that, in Australian life, have kept Indigenous, Asian, and European Australians in separate compartments. This is a book that relates the dark history of Australian racism and discriminatory practices. There are stories of children taken from parents, fathers deported or interned, and women sexually exploited. There are stories of the blinkered and insensitive administration of discriminatory legislation and of equally blinkered and insensitive attitudes and behaviors. And there is an emphasis on the continuity of these from the early days of the European presence through to 2006.

Each of these "moments" is located within broader contexts. For example, the stories of internment and separation during World War II reside within the longer history of the relations established between Japanese pearlers and Aboriginal women and within the longer history of invasion literature. Pauline Hanson's sentiments are set within the revival of anti-Asian fear mongering of the late twentieth century.

The events, their contexts, and their meanings, however, take on new energy and meaning as Stephenson presents the ways in which Indigenous and Asian creative artists have converted their experiences and those of their families and communities into plays, multimedia presentations, novels, poems, and documentaries. She uses interviews with some of the artists. She recounts processes in which working closely with community members to share and collect their stories and traditions are central. She both subtly and overtly demonstrates how oral history meets history meets public history and is presented to different audiences. [End Page 242] 59ce067264
