Houston, Texas today has the seventh largest Asian American population in the country, yet their experiences and contributions remain invisible in the narrative of Asian Americans and U.S. history. Their rich and colorful history is now captured in the Houston Asian American Archive (HAAA) at Rice University. Eleven years into its existence, the Archive has garnered awards and collected more than four hundred stories. Anne Shen Chao will discuss the Archive’s genesis and share some of the remarkable stories in its collection.
