Political Junkie On Impeachment / 'The White Devil’s Daughters' / California Museum Highlights Chinese Americans
House impeachment managers and President Trump’s legal team presented opening statements and the Political Junkie looks ahead; a book about the trafficking of Chinese women; a new California Museum exhibit on Chinese Americans in the Golden State.
The rules were set. The House impeachment managers presented their 24-hour opening statement. The President’s lawyers outlined their defense. What will this week hold? The Political Junkie, Ken Rudin, shares his perspective.
On Sacramento Street in San Francisco there’s a big, brown, brick building: Cameron House. Its history goes back to 1874, when it became a rescue house for girls and women. Most of them were Chinese, escaping slavery and the sex trade in the city.
A new exhibit at the California Museum shines a spotlight on the past hundred years of Chinese American history in the state. It’s permeated with discrimination and struggle, but also features perseverance, enormous achievement and success.
