Welcome to the digital version of "Journey of Hope", a community-curated exhibit that ran May–July, 2023 at the Charlotte Museum of History. "Journey of Hope" celebrates Charlotte’s diverse Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community and features artifacts from 23 AAPI cultures in Charlotte.
“This exhibit is groundbreaking and truly one-of-a-kind because it is curated by members of Charlotte’s AAPI community, focusing on their unique perspectives, histories and journeys,” said Terri L. White, president and CEO of the Charlotte Museum of History.
“We welcome this opportunity to showcase the venerable heritage and ancient cultures of the AAPI community in Charlotte, which help make the Queen City so vibrant, inclusive and global,” said Dr. Nini Bautista de Garcia, exhibit co-chair and chair of the Asian American Foundation for the Carolinas. “The story of Asians and Pacific Islanders in America is one of perseverance, resilience and hope. And it started a long time ago.”
