The History of Chinese in Maine: Talk & Reception

Thursday, Dec 13th 5271
5:30 – 7pm
Maine College of Art

While there has been a relatively small population of Chinese residents of Maine over the years, those who have settled here have made their mark, dating back to the first Chinese immigrant who came in 1857.

Come hear some stories about these early Chinese Mainers, and also enjoy some Chinese tea and snacks, sponsored by the Chinese & American Friendship Association of Maine. This program is in conjunction with the opening of an exhibit by Chinese artist Yu-wen Wu and is part of MECA’s Making Migrations Visible initiative.
