The story of Asians and Pacific Islanders in America is one of perseverance, resilience, and hope. In and around Charlotte, those in the diverse and
fast-growing AAPI community often live between two worlds. In so doing, they remain proud Carolinians and loyal Americans, while continuing to honor their traditional cultures and values. The artifacts in this exhibit are a collection of personal items from Charlotte area residents who belong to one of the more than 25 distinct Asian American communities that live, work, and play in greater Charlotte.
Journey of Hope is a community partnership between the AAFC and the Charlotte Museum of History
