Join us for the opening reception of the Chinese American Museum’s newest exhibit, “Roots: Asian American Movements in Los Angeles 1968-80s.”


Reception Jan. 19 from 6 to 9 p.m. will be held at Pico House, 424 N. Main St, Los Angeles, CA 90012. Free to the public; drinks and snacks will be served.

Museum members will be able to attend a members-only preview of the exhibit at 5:30 pm.


“Roots” collects and presents the history and work of young Los Angeles activists that shaped Asian America through a long decade of fighting displacement, serving their communities, agitating for revolution, and analyzing the intersections of gender, race, and class. From Little Tokyo to Chinatown to Historic Filipinotown to the West side, and in solidarity with Latina/o, Black, feminist, and international struggles, Los Angeles saw the rise of artistic and political movements.
