Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month

Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month - May 1 - May 31

As Reach and Teach joins in the celebration of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, here are some books and gift items that will hopefully pique your curiosity and help recognize the contributions and influence of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islander Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States. Why the month of May? According to wikipedia.org, on May 7, 1843, the first Japanese immigrant, Nakahama Manjirō, arrived in the United States. More than two decades later, on May 10, 1869, the golden spike was driven into the first transcontinental railroad, which was completed using Chinese labor.
