Launch of The Chinese in the Richmond exhibition at One Richmond

Jul 26, 2023

One Richmond was proud to co-host the launch of The Chinese in the Richmond exhibition. Participants and local history buffs attended two celebratory launch events on Clement Street. Many guest speakers spoke about their memories of moving to the Richmond District and what it was like growing up here. District 1 Supervisor Connie Chan made some remarks to the gathered crowd. It was wonderful to meet neighbors new and old at this community event.

🍊A collaboration between the Chinese Historical Society of America and Western Neighborhoods Project , CHINESE IN THE RICHMOND sheds light on the lives of Chinese Americans in San Francisco’s Richmond District from the community’s point of view.
