In her new book, Dr. Marie Rose Wong peers through the lens of single-room occupancy (SRO) hotels to capture the 157-year origin story of Seattle’s pan-Asian International District.
Join Dr. Wong to learn about her work that layers together interviews, maps, photographs, and insights from over a decade of primary research to provide an urgent history for Asian American activists and urban planners. This presentation by Dr. Wong follows her popular tours of the Chinatown-International District which she led for Historic Seattle last year.
Dr. Wong’s book will be available for purchase.
