We would like to invite you to join us on December 3, 2018, in celebrating the launch of Journeys of Hope: Challenging Discrimination and Building on Vancouver Chinatown’s Legacies!
This official edition is the result of a collaboration between UBC researchers and the City of Vancouver. It includes a new chapter with photos from the City’s Apology for past discrimination against people of Chinese descent on April 22, 2018. Meet author Henry Yu and co-editors Sarah Ling and Szu Shen.
Chinese migrants arrived in what is now known as Canada as early as 1788. Their contributions were often forgotten as part of a long history of racism and discrimination in Canada. Journeys of Hope captures the story of how early Chinese migrants helped transform societies around the world, and how Vancouver’s Chinatown and other Chinatowns throughout Canada and the Pacific region are the living legacies of that transformation.
Date: December 5th, 2018 / 5:00 – 7:00 pm
Location: Chinatown House / 188 E. Pender Street
