Endurance Streets Chinatown Tour Event
145 Harrison Street lobby
“Endurance Streets 堅韌的街道: Resilience and Response in Boston’s Chinese Community” is a collaboration between the Chinese Historical Society of New England and Tisch College’s Program for Public Humanities at Tufts University, created as a response to the economic distress and racially-motivated attacks that have impacted Boston’s Chinese-speaking neighborhood during the pandemic. This public-facing exhibition both documents the past several years within this community and extends the narrative historically, bringing the struggles and the accomplishments of Chinatown, over the past century, into view.
Please join us for a guided tour of the Exhibit led by Leanne Loo, graduate student in Public Health and exhibition and curatorial assistant. The tour will last approximately one hour, followed by treats from a local Chinatown bakery.
Space is limited to ensure a meaningful (and audible!) tour experience, so an RSVP is required. A waitlist will be available and we can schedule additional dates if there is sufficient interest. We will depart promptly at 1pm from 145 Harrison Street lobby.
