Becoming American the Chinese experience [Volume 3] No turning back
In interviews with historians, descendants, and recent immigrants, this program begins with the new immigration laws of 1965, which was a turning point for the Chinese in America and allowed a new wave of immigrants to enter the country. Provides information about discrimination against Chinese immigrants. Presents portraits of the new Chinese Americans who face a struggle common to many immigrants: to reconcile some losses of their old culture in order to embrace their adopted American one.
