The Chinese Exclusion Act – documentary by PBS
A deeply American story – about immigration and national identity, civil rights and human justice; about how we define who can be an American, and what being an American means.
Examine the origin, history and impact of the 1882 law that made it illegal for Chinese workers to come to America and for Chinese nationals already here ever to become U.S. citizens. It remained in force for more than 60 years.
