Jeanie Jew and the Creation of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month #AsianPacificAmericanHeritageMonth
Time recently published this article discussing the suffering Chinese immigrants endured through the example of Jeanie Jew’s familial history. The article also covers the creation of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month as it is celebrated today.
The month of May was selected for two reasons: First, to commemorate the arrival of the first known Japanese immigrant to the U.S. on May 7, 1843; secondly, to honor the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869 — the building of which up to 20,000 Chinese workers participated in.
