Oakland: Film Screening & Discussion

  • The New Parkway Theater 474 24th Street Oakland, CA 94612 (map)

Free screening of “The Chinese Exclusion Act” from award-winning documentary filmmakers Ric Burns and Li-Shin Yu, as part of the Diversity Film Series.

Following the screening, well-known community advocate David Lei, who is featured in the film, will lead a discussion on this little-known part of American history and its relevance for 2018 and beyond. Lei’s passion for building communities, social improvements, youth education and the arts has led to his becoming a tireless Bay Area volunteer with many organizations, such as the Center for Asian American Media.

Food available for purchase before and after screening at the theater. Find out more at the Diversity Film Series website.
