Mott Street Girls and Chinatown YMCA are hosting a screening and discussion for Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Join us on Monday night for a FREE screening of “Blurring the Color Line: Chinese in the Segregated South,” directed by an award-winning filmmaker Crystal Kwok. After the screening, Mott Street Girls will be moderating a discussion with Crystal about her film and contemporary issues impacting New York City’s Chinatown community.

“Blurring the Color Line” disrupts the binary black and white narrative of the American South by examining the complexities of race relations between the Chinese and Black communities during Jim Crow in Augusta, GA, in the 1930s with the hopes of bringing much-needed discussion and dialogue between the same communities now as our nation is at reckoning with racism and white supremacy. Masks required.Email Elise if you’re planning to attend!
