Summary:
The first Korean migration to America began in the early 1900s, when about 100 Koreans landed in Hawaii to work on sugarcane plantations. But 16-hour workdays and inhumane living conditions outraged many of these newcomers, who fled to the mainland. Although they prospered, Korean Americans met with anti-Asian prejudice that reached as high as the federal government, which passed harsh immigration laws, not lifted until 1965. Since then, nearly one million Korean Americans have settled in New York, Los Angeles and other cities, revitalizing old communities, empty churches and stagnant commercial districts. 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.
