RECOGNIZING THE CONRIBUTIONS, INFLUENCE, AND ACHIEVEMENTS TO AMERICAN HISTORY, CULTURE, AND SOCIETY

We at Equal Opportunity Schools recognize Asian Americans and Pacific Islander Americans (AAPI) that for generations have made contributions to the history and achievements of the United States. We are proud to join with those who work to close education gaps for the AAPI community.

We honor Mamie Tape, the 8-year-old Chinese-American girl who helped desegregate schools San Francisco schools in 1885 through her bid to the California Supreme Court seven decades before Brown v. Board.
Dr. Mabel Ping-Hua Lee broke barriers to become the first Chinese woman to earn a PhD in economics from Colombia University. Dr. Lee published her research as a book called “The Economic History of China” in 1921.
