What Your Should Know About the Chinese in America That Your History Book Left Out

1,034 views

Published on

Presentation to University of Memphis Campus School 5th grade about the history of Chinese in America, Sept. 13, 2011. A videotape of me speaking did not show my slides which contained valuable information. Im this adapted "slide cast," I have linked the slides with the audio from the videotape. (At slide 40, the videotape ran out, so I had to improvise and add the narration for the remainding 14 slides.)
