An American Story with Chinese Roots

The New-York Historical Society’s “Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion” exhibition features the immigrant story of Amy Chin’s family as told through a graphic novel. “The most remarkable thing about the story of the Chins,” says SinoVision reporter Lani Nelson, “is not its uniqueness but rather its striking similarity to the stories of countless American families.”

Watch the SinoVision video to hear Chin, a Bronx-born, third-generation Chinese American, tell her family’s story and the resemblance it bears to countless other American stories, both Chinese and non-Chinese.
