History Talk on Chinese Explusion In Whatcom County

The Legacy of Intolerance

On Monday, Nov. 8, 7-9 PM at the Fairhaven College Auditorium, WWU, a discussion will be held on the 125th anniversary of the expulsion of Chinese residents from Whatcom County. Here’s a chance to hear a terrific panel on a little known chapter of the county’s history.

During the 1880s, a hysteria swept through the Northwest over Chinese immigrants.  This presentation up at Fairhaven College is more than a presentation, it’s remembrance.
