Youth from the Chinese community
marched and posed along
In 1965 Congress passed and President Johnson signed the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965. This was a watershed event in our history because it allowed unprecedented numbers of Chinese and other immigrants to come to America after many years of exclusion. Boston’s Chinatown, like many other Chinatowns across the country, was forever changed in terms of its social, demographic, economic, and cultural characteristics. Special tours can be arranged for groups to cover topics of particular interest, such as community growth since 1965.
The 90-minute tours are given by trained volunteers and scheduled by special arrangements. Tours are available for groups of ten or more. To arrange for a tour please contact CHSNE at (617) 338-4339 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with your request and contact information. A CHSNE volunteer will respond.
