The civil disturbances and street violence after the assassination of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. had a profound impact on all of Washington, DC. It had no less an impact on DC’s Chinatown, which found itself caught between the black and white struggle.

Ting-Yi Oie, 1882 Foundation, will moderate a discussion with filmmakers Penny Lee and Lisa Mao; Ted Gong, 1882 Federation; and Samir Meghelli, Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum, about the film and its related curriculum.
