The LA Chinatown massacre podcast series – “Blood On Gold Mountain”
This multi-episode podcast series about the 1871 LA Chinatown massacre commemorates the worst mass race lynching on the West Coast, when at least 20 Chinese immigrants were lynched in one night in October by a crowd of about 500 Angelenos, which accounted for nearly one fifth the male population of the city. This podcast series tells the stories of the Chinese in LA who were witnesses and unwilling victims of that massacre, that finds eerie parallels to the vicious anti-Asian American attacks that are taking place today in the USA, spurred by racism and COVID-19 fears. Join us in the telling and the listening on the initial podcast release on Wednesday, March 24th, 2021 at 6 a.m., with following episodes in the series released every Wednesday. (we will provide a host weblink soon)
