Mellon Digital Humanities Initiative Communities Documentary Film Series - The Chinese Exclusion Act. Films are free and open to the public. Frank Banko Alehouse Cinemas, ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks, 101 Founder's Way, Bethlehem 

With the Chinese Exclusion Act, filmmakers Ric Burns and Li-Shin Yu tackle a complicated yet under-told story about a significant piece of U.S. history—the only legislation barring an entire group of immigrants based on ethnicity and race. More significant, as highlighted through first-person interviews and archival materials, is the resistance against racism and the resilience of people that shaped the fabric of the United States well into the 21st century. Directed by Ric Burns and Li-Shin Yu (2017), 2 hours 10 minutes
