On October 24, 1871, seventeen Chinese men including a 15-year-old were killed by a mob in Los Angeles’ historic Chinatown. Known as the Chinese Massacre of 1871, it was the culmination of growing anti-Chinese sentiment leading to racially motivated violence. 

This program is presented by the Chinese American Museum and El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument. The event Co-Chair is David Louie, Commissioner of El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument. Wreaths sponsored by the Kellogg Foundation’s Truth, Racial Healing, & Transformation – Los Angeles and Henry Kwong of Universal Mortuary.
