For many Asian Americans, Chinatowns were the start of their families' American journeys. What began as segregated communities created to battle the discrimination and isolation they faced became places of essential support and services. It was where these immigrants first felt safe and at home. But many of the oldest Chinatowns are now threatened by gentrification, aging populations, and assimilation. This one-hour documentary pays tribute to five of the most beloved Chinatowns in America, showcasing local activists and community members who devote their lives to preserving these essential enclaves.
