History from Different Angles: South Asian American Stories in California
February 23, 2019, 10am to 4 pm
Charles E. Young Research Library
South Asian Americans have been a presence in the United States for more than 130 years, yet their stories are little known. Early immigrants from South Asia worked on farms and factories, helped build railroads, fought for India’s freedom from British rule, and struggled for equal rights at home. On Saturday, February 23rd, the South Asian American Digital Archive (SAADA), in partnership with UCLA, presents History from Different Angles: South Asian American Stories in California, a one-day symposium about the earliest South Asian immigrants in California, featuring conversations with researchers, archivists, artists, and family members.
The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
