SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The Chinese Culture Center in San Francisco unveiled a new mural this morning. They partnered with Wells Fargo to create the artwork that depicts 12 important, but often unrecognized Asian American and Pacific Islander community leaders.
The corner of Jackson Street and Grant Avenue in San Francisco’s Chinatown now tells the stories of Asian American and Pacific Islander Leaders.
“Its been a journey.. year long process,” Chinese Cultural Center Executive Director Jenny Leung said. “We reached out to youth in the community to have it be a youth nominated process.. So that we could highlight stories that haven’t been recognized, shared or told that. Stories our youth haven’t heard about”
