SAN DIEGO—Jiātíng gùshì: Workshop III

September 28, 2019 @ 3:00 am5:00 am

$5.00

  SAN DIEGO—On September 28, the San Diego Chinese Historical Society and Museum will host the third of six oral history interview workshops, under the project title Jiātíng gùshì . We’re inviting community members and their families to share and record memories and stories at the Museum’s Pei Chen Liu and Tsun-Nien Chang Library at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Extension on J Street in San Diego’s Asian-Pacific Thematic Historic District. For the third oral history interview workshop, we are pleased to welcome special guest Tom Hom to share stories from his time in public service, on the San Diego City Council (1963-1967) and the California State Assembly (1968-1970), thinking toward how these earlier experiences may have influenced his participation with the Chinese Historical Society of Greater San Diego and Baja California to push for the designation of San Diego’s Chinatown as a Historic District in the mid- to late-1980’s. Members of the public are welcome to sit in on the oral history interview sessions, which are free with purchase of Museum admission ($5.00).
