4.6/8 



有朋友问起讲华裔美国人的书,想起我们镇妈妈俱乐部2009年曾捐赠学区一批书籍,有的适合小学生,有的适合历史老师和辅导员。近来华人意识到不能缩在自己小圈子里,那么捐书给学区老师,班级和图书馆是一个有长远影响的办法。下面是我做过research, 从Amazon上买的(镇上妈妈捐款)。很多可以买二手书,较便宜,也是新的。

更新:
Asian Pacific Islanders and the Civil War

有些人沉浸在过去,或屈辱或荣光,或爱恋或痛恨,或妄自菲薄,或怨天尤人,都无甚正能量,而只是前行的绊脚石。前段撰文号召华裔起来书写我们自己的历史:http://www.overseaswindow.com/node/14306

五年前曾给学区写信(英文下附),希望多讲一下亚洲二战历史以及华人历来对美国在运输,农业,公平教育以及人权上的贡献。坐而论道不如起而行之,要不咱读点儿书,捐点儿书,写点儿信?

转LL:“华裔孩子学中文重要。但是知道华人亚裔在美国乃至西方生存的历史更重要。没有什么是能唾手而得的。” 
转 John:“了解历史,努力未来!在民主社会,海外华人必须团结起来捍卫自己的权益!!”

五年前给学区写的信(节选)

“Some of the books may be more suitable for counselors and social study teachers, rather than students. We know the Social Studies Dept. held a seminar in the public Library in January, and there is an elective course on Holocaust. We hope more can be discussed on WWII in Asia.

We also hope in the curriculum, more can be discussed on the Chinese immigrants' contribution to transportation, agriculture, equal access to education, civil rights etc.

Please let us know if you'd like to have more copies. We will then purchase some.  It will be great if the counselors (and social study teachers) can have access to some of the books here.”
