Gordon H. Chang will present a talk about his newest book GHOSTS OF GOLD MOUNTAIN: The Epic Story of the Chinese Who Built the Transcontinental Railroad, a groundbreaking account that draws on unprecedented research to recover the Chinese railroad workers’ stories and celebrate their role in remaking America. An invaluable correction of a great historical injustice, GHOSTS OF GOLD MOUNTAIN returns these “silent spikes” to their rightful place in our national saga. Q&A and a book signing to follow.

Photographers David Bacon and Francisco Dominguez lend an air of immediacy through their photography of struggles for justice on immigration issues.
