May 19, 1-2 pm ET | Legacy and the Story of the Chinese Railroad Workers
In honor and recognition of Asian American Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) heritage month, the Office of Facilities and Administrative Services, in partnership with the Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Civil Rights (ODICR), Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), National Park Service (NPS) and Interior Business Center (IBC) will feature a presentation on the Legacy and the Story of the Chinese Railroad Workers by Dr. Michael Sheehan, BLM Archeologist. He was recently featured in the Smithsonian Magazine and will conduct a live exhibit highlighting the work found. Since the 1960s, archaeologists have studied the work camps of Chinese immigrants and Chinese American laborers who built the railroads of the American West. The artifacts, sites, and landscapes provide a rich source of practical information about the historical experiences of Chinese railroad workers. All are encouraged to participate in the planned event. Contact email@example.com for reasonable accommodations. Click here to access the flyer.
