Recognizing the sacrifices and contributions of Chinese in America

Did you know that the largest Chinese fishing settlement in the early days of the commercial fishing industry was thriving near us in Monterey Bay? Did you know that it was infamously burned down in 1906, and its residents forced to scatter beyond California?

Yet the Chinese are also an integral part of American society and history. They served and died in World War II, to a level commensurate with any ethnic group. Have you heard of those Chinese pilots who died in active duty in the 1940s, and were buried in the National Cemeteries?

On Saturday, September 2, 2023 Ding Ding TV, Silicon Valley Community Media will host the viewing of the documentary “One-Mile Walk” by Filmmaker Min Zhou. She will also show for the first time the trailers of her films “My 58 Uncles” and “Born to Fly”. Then she will share with this audience her next production plan.

Following to Q&A and discussions with Min Zhou, will be two panel discussions with prominent Silicon Valley media veterans and community leaders.

Audience members will have the chance to win a copy of the book “Searching for the Lost Memories” autographed by author Ann Lee.

While this event is free-of-charge, a donation of $20 or more per person is encouraged. All donations will be used to support the production of Chinese American documentaries.
