Chinatown in Salem – the Chinese Shrine

Show Notes

This week on the Forum, Kimberli Fitzgerald, City of Salem, tells the story of Asian immigrants who were an important part of the settling and building of Salem, their legacy and how they were sent back from the US to China because of the almost forgotten laws of that time more than a century ago. Thanks to the Willamette Heritage Center for sharing the audio recording to make this program.
