The Henry Wong and You King Yee Memorial Gallery (W/Y Gallery) and the
Chinese Progressive Association invite you to This Land Is Our Land, a
historical exhibition honoring the fifteenth anniversary of Boston
Chinatown’s victorious Parcel C struggle.

After decades of urban renewal and institutional expansion, the Chinatown
community was pushed too far when Tufts New England Medical Center, the
Boston Redevelopment Authority, and the city of Boston wanted to build a
450-car garage in the middle of this historic community on a piece of land
called Parcel C. The struggle for Parcel C represents Chinatown’s ability to
rally across the boundaries of power, race and class to preserve its
community in the face of increased incursion by the city of Boston and other
large institutions.  The exhibit commemorates this historic event through
the lens of community mobilization, demonstrating how the spirit of
resistance that in many ways has defined this country, is still alive today.

Come join us for the exhibit opening 5-8pm on April 16, 2010 at the W/Y
Gallery located at One Nassau St., Unit 2.
