International District: The Unknown Legacy
This website concerns the history of Chinatown in Seattle and its immigrants. This topic is important because Chinese and other Asian immigrants had a significant impact on Seattle. They contributed a lot, yet received no recognition, instead only harsh words and racist epitaphs. They were treated as second class citizens, shunned away from society and put into a little area of Seattle called Chinatown. This area has a lot of history, yet it is always overlooked. We want to educate Chinatown/International District's immigrants on how its social reality shaped their life.
