“LA 1871” is a two-day symposium and special performance in conjunction with Our Shared Future: Reckoning with Our Racial Past that explores the history of race and racism in Chinatown and the greater Los Angeles area. LA 1871 will focus on the history of the Chinese Massacre of 1871—a tragic event that has been historically overlooked by the news media. Special guest speakers will explore the historical implications of the event and discuss the long-term impacts of the tragedy in parallel to our contemporary socio-political climate. A special musical performance by award-winning composer, Nathan Wang, invites audiences to experience the historical context of the tragedy and brings the program to a close.
The symposium will be held on Saturday, December 9, and Sunday, December 10, from 10:30am – 2:30pm PDT.
Internationally acclaimed composer, director, and pianist Nathan Wang will perform on Sunday, Dec, 10, 12:30 p.m. to 1 p.m., in conjunction with the Chinese American Museum’s two-day symposium at the Pico House, El Pueblo de Los Angeles. Entitled Never Forget: 1871, the composition is a musical re-telling of the story of the Chinese Massacre of 1871, which combines an ensemble of western and Chinese instruments accompanying voices in this premiere all Chinese-American cast.
