Doughnuts & Documentaries: The Chinese Exclusion Act

Wednesday, September 12, 2018

Join Waukesha Public Library for a Doughnuts & Documentaries event on September 12 at 10:00 AM. As part of the Waukesha Reads program, the Library will be showing the PBS documentary The Chinese Exclusion Act. The film examines the origin, history, and impact of the 1882 law that made it illegal for Chinese workers to come to America and for Chinese nationals to become U.S. citizens. An informal discussion will follow with coffee and doughnuts provided by Friends of Waukesha Public Library.
