King Street, Alexandria, VA 1928


The story of Chinese immigrants in Alexandria, Virginia is that a small community of launderers made a space for themselves  along the city’s commercial corridor, navigating nativist attitudes and behaviors from local whites in various ways. Nevertheless, there are still lots of unanswered questions about these men. Furthermore, the historiography on Chinese in Virginia and, by extension, the South is sparse. Ultimately, research on the topic of Chinese immigrants in the United States, especially in Virginia, would benefit from further study. A starting point would be more studies of immigrant communities across the country, such as Alexandria.
