About the Program

In the saga of American immigration, the Chinese experience is relatively unknown. But it's a fascinating and dramatic story of struggle and triumph, progress and setbacks, separation and assimilation, discrimination and achievement.

BECOMING AMERICAN: THE CHINESE EXPERIENCE explores the complicated relationship between the past and the present, between a nation and its people.

It is a story about identity and belonging that will resonate with all Americans.

The documentary premiered March 25 - 27, 2003 on Thirteen.
