Join Music of Asian America Research Center's Eric Hung and Nancy Yunhwa Rao for a program on Asian American entertainment during the Exclusion Era.

Between 1875 and 1943, federal, state and municipal governments severely restricted immigration from Asia, and barred many Asians from citizenship, land ownership and numerous occupations. The result is the development of largely bachelor ethnic enclaves. This program, co-sponsored by 1882 Foundation, explores how Asian Americans of this period entertained themselves, and what the shows they produced say about their efforts to assimilate, preserve heritage cultures, and form new “Asian American” hybrids.
