In the late 1800s, anti-Chinese agitation led to federal laws targeting Chinese abroad and those already in the U.S. THE CHINESE EXCLUSION ACT looks far beyond the legislation of its title and weaves archival photos, historian interviews, and first-hand accounts into a sweeping chronicle of Chinese American life in an era that still informs American conceptions of national and ethnic identity.
