AAPI / Pan-Asian Month @ TAFT: Wednesday Websites

From the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center
On May 10, 2014, more than 500 people joined the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center for A Day in the Life of Asian Pacific America by capturing over 2,000 photos and videos throughout the course of a single day. Works were submitted from everywhere – throughout the United States and from around the world. This exhibit features a small selection of the work and remains an experiment in envisioning the Asian Pacific America experience as a vast and complex identity, with a history that grows richer and more complicated with each new day.
Why May 10th?
May 10, 2014 was selected because it was the 145th anniversary of the completion of the Transcontinental Railway, which was built in large part using Chinese labor. There are no Chinese workers in the official photograph.
