Summary
In interviews with historians, descendants, and recent immigrants, this program begins with a description of the early 1880s when a wave of anti-Chinese sentiment swept across America, abetted by the Chinese Exclusion Act. Families were kept apart by both ancient custom and U.S. law. These immigrants were trapped between countries, at home neither in the U.S. nor in China. The law of the land, which separated these families, also provided relief as Chinese Americans turned to the courts for justice. Presents Chinese Americans contributions during World War II, and describes their struggles to prove their value both in war time and after returning home
