Malden Reads: A Citizen Lyceum Forum

Join us for an evening of film and discussion around the PBS documentary “The Chinese Exclusion Act.” The program will be held here at the Malden Public Library on Tuesday, March 26, beginning at 6:30 p.m. The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 prohibited the immigration of Chinese laborers to the U.S.

This event is co-sponsored by the American Association of Arab Women, the Chinese Culture Connection, MaldenCORE (Community Organizing for Racial Equity), and the Malden Public Library.

Roger Desrosiers from the Massachusetts Center for Civic Education will lead the conversation related to the Chinese Exclusion Act. Malden Reads began co-hosting lyceums in 2018; they are opportunities to become engaged citizens through civic and civil dialogue. This is the third in the lyceum series, and Roger is participating again upon special request. Feel free to attend this even if you didn’t make it to the lyceums last year!

The Citizen Lyceum is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. We hope that you can join us and bring a friend!
