Remembering the Chinese Educational Mission at the Connecticut Historical Society

From 1872 to 1881, 120 young Chinese boys were sent to America on an educational exchange program.

This hour we hear the stories of these boys and what their lives looked like around New England.

We also hear from the Connecticut Historical Society and learn about an exhibit honoring the Chinese Educational Mission.

Later, we learn more about Connecticut’s efforts to implement a robust AAPI curriculum in our schools.
