Our Vibrant AAPI Community: Selections from the Houston Asian American Archive

The lives of the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community in Houston are woven intimately into the history of the larger metropolis. Asian Americans first settled in the Bayou City and its vicinity in the early twentieth century, and the community grew substantially after the relaxation of immigration laws in 1965. The archival materials displayed in this exhibit represent a sampling of the richness of AAPI experiences, offering a panoramic view of Houston's AAPI world.

This exhibit is presented in partnership with the Woodson Research Center at Rice University and the Houston Public Library.
