These are the stories of the racism, oppression, and violence that early Chinese immigrants in North America endured. The photos here, taken from U.S. immigration forms, show just a few of the more than 100,000 Chinese immigrants who made their way to this continent in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. They helped build our countries, but much of what they experienced has been erased from our view.
