About the Lecture:

In the Jim Crow US South where segregation between White and Black people was strictly enforced, where did the Chinese immigrants fit in? What did their social, cultural, and economic life look like? In this research talk, Dr. Shaolu Yu will share the story of the Chinese-owned grocery stores in the Jim Crow South as multiracial and multifunctional spaces for self-mobilization and cultural preservation.
