Until now, you've only heard one side of the story, but Chinese American history extends far beyond the railroads. Here's the true story of America, from the Chinese American perspective.
If you've learned about the history of Chinese people in America, it was probably about their work on the railroads in the 1800s. But more likely, you may not have learned about it at all. This may make it feel like Chinese immigration is a newer part of this country, but some scholars believe the first immigrant arrived from China 499 CE--one thousand years before Columbus did!
When immigration picked up in the mid-1800s, efforts to ban immigrants from China began swiftly. But hope, strength, and community allowed the Chinese population in America to flourish. From the gold rush and railroads to entrepreneurs, animators, and movie stars, this is the true story of the Chinese American experience.
Series Overview: A middle grade history series which gives an unflinching account of America’s history while celebrating underrepresented heroes and achievements. Each book tells the story of America from the perspective of a marginalized community within it, and will align with curriculum topics. We will publish 2 books a year, with the first two out in Fall 2023, one in Spring 2024, and the next in Fall 2024.
