Class Description:St. Louis' Chinatown was one of many Chinese communities that sprang up across the country, facing many challenges and successes. Join Dr. Huping Ling, author of "Chinese in St. Louis, 1857-2007", as she takes us through a journey that includes loneliness - as individuals left their families in China to come to St. Louis - and community as they bonded together in their home-away-from-home to establish new families and start their own businesses.
