Responses Exhibit Opening Reception

Join Vermont Humanities and the Manchester Community Library for a special gallery opening with the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) exhibit Responses. Responses originated at the MOCA in New York in 2021 and was conceived of as an offering to our communities in a moment of crisis. Chinese and Asian Americans were being blamed as the genesis of the coronavirus and targeted in assaults across the country, harming their bodies as well as their sense of belonging. To help us navigate what was happening, this exhibition explored the lessons of history and raised a collective voice against the rising tide of anti-Asian hate and violence.
