Welcome to Season 2, Episode 9! We begin with a few words on the Ukraine situation and our memories of trains. The main story is on something that will seem familiar to many U.S. taught students… The Chinese and the first Transcontinental Railroad. Chinese laborers were key in the building of the transcontinental railroad, all while facing discrimination and danger. We close out the episode with a Winter Olympics wrap-up. To learn more about the Chinese and the railroad, visit Chinese Railroad Workers in North America Project or the Chinese Railroad Workers Descendants Association.
