Asian Cultural Experience

ACE 9-10-2013-1Asian Cultural Experience is committed to preserving, recording, documenting and exhibiting the history and culture of the Salinas Chinatown area where several ethnic groups have lived, worked, and gathered together since 1872. Chinatown is a historical “gold mountain.”  If walls could speak, this tiny rundown neighborhood (on the other side of the railroad tracks from Old Town), would tell a rich multi-ethnic story of agricultural development, labor movements, daily life and low life, collaboration and tension, discrimination and solidarity.  Culture offers an abundance to celebrate! No one culture or historical period can claim a monopoly on this neighborhood.
