Summary:
In the 1850s, the first Chinese immigrants came to America by the thousands to search for gold in California. They worked in mining, railroad construction, agriculture and other areas that white Americans saw as unappealing, and faced discrimination and exploitation wherever they settled. As a result, they formed purely Chinese communities called "Chinatowns." Chinese Americans have since made many valuable contributions to American culture and industry, particularly in the areas of science, music and architecture. Today, after years of segregation and struggle, Chinese Americans thrive as a vital part of the ever-adapting American society. Part of the Multicultural Peoples of North America Video Series, a compelling collection that celebrates the heritage of different cultural groups in North America.

Only available in the US.
