Honor & Duty: Mississippi Delta Chinese

Honor and Duty: The Mississippi Delta Chinese documentary film will premiere on Mississippi Public Broadcasting May 2016.  

This very important story reveals the almost forgotten narrative of the Chinese coming to the Mississippi Delta in the 1870s... to the early establishment of Chinese markets... to the significant number of Delta Chinese World War II soldiers and their service to this country...  through the expansion of grocery stores, their social and economic impact and finally,...  to present day Chinese Americans in the Mississippi Delta community.

Chinese American history matters. Please help preserve it before it is lost forever! Please support this very important story with your end of year charitable donation. The Delta State University Foundation has adopted this film as a project making all donations tax deductible. All donations accepted.
