04/21/24 KTSF Interview at CAH Museum

April 25, 2024 5:48 PM | Elyse Wong (Administrator)

By Gerrye Wong, CHCP Co-Founder and Trustee

On April 21, 2024, KTSF (Digital Channel 26/Cable Channel 8) spotlighted an interview by reporter Mina Li with CHCP Co-Founder Gerrye Wong and CHCP Co-Vice President of Marketing/Outreach Dr. Arthur Jue at CHCP's Chinese American Historical Museum in a half-hour show centered on the museum.  At the museum itself, Gerrye and Arthur were able to tell how CHCP first began, due to artifacts from an original Chinatown being found in a downtown San Jose digging site in 1985.

Leading Mina through the museum, they demonstrated CHCP's Timeline Display which shows events occurring in China, United States and San Jose which is of significance for the Chinese, spanning the period from the 1850s through the 2000s. When queried about how CHCP tries to combat the current anti-Asian hate atmosphere, they proudly pointed out that CHCP has hosted trips by thousands of school children so that they can come to the museum to learn of the contributions made by the Chinese throughout the history of America, and how Asians should be treated fairly so that they can continue to contribute to the American economy and society today and in the future.

We thank KTSF and Mina Li for enabling their viewers to know about CHCP’s museum, so that they can visit the museum which is open on most Saturdays each month from 11:00 am to 3:30 pm.
