America ReFramed: Chinatown Rising

Thu, 05/26/2022 - 8:00pm - 9:30pm

From protesting poor housing conditions to advocating for more youth programming, the activists of San Francisco’s Chinatown in the 60s and 70s had a vision for their community.

Weaving together never-before-seen archival footage and photographs, CHINATOWN RISING reveals a deeply personal portrait of a San Francisco neighborhood in transition. Chinatown activists of the 1960s reflect on their years as young residents waging battles for bilingual education, tenants’ rights and ethnic studies curriculum that would shape their community and nation. America ReFramed: Chinatown Rising airs Thursday, May 26 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-WORLD.
