The struggle of more than 100 years for Chinese Canadians in Canada is quite a journey. Although the Chinese Head Tax is a history now, what do we learn from his piece of history for our lives?
In fact, the difficulties our Chinese-Canadian ancestors encountered before are not unique. You may still find some similar experiences in today's society, especially when someone is a newcomer from another country.
in each person's life, we face challenges. If you are people of colour, you have a higher chance to face bully and discrimination. Sometimes when you feel down and no one cares about you, what are your choices? To abandon yourself or to engage yourself in positive and constructive ways to confront the challenges and make the situation better. What can you do when you feel you're seemingly the only one?
We hope that by walking you through in this piece of Chinese-Canadian history, you can be inspired by these Chinese-Canadian ancestors to understand that with perseverance and collective actions, injustice can be changed. No need to be afraid and never give up even though in hard time.
