The 1871 Los Angeles Chinatown Massacre was one of the bloodiest massacres against Asians in the US on record. It was the first in a series of riots and killings documented in places like Rock Springs Wyoming, San Francisco, and other towns along the Pacific Coast. It was in the midst of these attacks that the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 was passed. A distinguished panel of speakers sheds more light on this little known chapter of Los Angeles and U.S. history in search of insights that might help us address the rise of anti-Asian hate we see today.
