On a grey morning, a group of Chinese seniors fussed over a pink-clad toddler, exclaiming in Cantonese and Toishanese. Other seniors strolled over and discussed their traditional Chinese dance and music classes. In another area, elders proudly displayed their Chinese ink-brush paintings of prancing horses and delicately veined shrimp. Despite all the Chinese commotion, these seniors do not live in Chinatown. Instead, they reside at the Jewish Community Housing for the Elderly.
Chinatown residents gathered to share their experiences of coming to America on April 13, in the Oak Terrace reading room. The Conversation Club is a community group formed by Harvard University student Lun Tian Yew and two high school students Sukey Lu and Yating Lu, who organized the event.
