For the March edition of our lecture series, Lily Birmingham will speak on the Dragon Boat Festival and the symbolism in the poem “Li Sao”
Qu Yuan became the first poet with his name associated with his works, and is considered the Father of Chinese Romantic poetry. He wrote “Li Sao” during his exile, and his death inspired the Dragon Boat Festival. This international festival is celebrated in San Diego with a race annually. Will run from March 29 until August 25, 2024

The San Diego Chinese Historical Museum is deeply committed to its mission: "To educate and inspire by preserving and celebrating the richness of Chinese history, art, and culture." Despite our unwavering dedication, we are facing financial constraints that impact our capacity to hire and support the dedicated staff necessary to bring our educational programs to life. We are seeking financial sponsorships to raise a minimum of $10,000 that will directly support our education programming. Your contribution will have a profound impact on our museum and the community at large.
The SDCHM has stood as a testament to our shared history, culture, and heritage for decades. However, time has taken its toll, and our cherished museum, last renovated in 1995 (almost 30 years ago!), is in dire need of repairs and enhancements to ensure it remains functional. To continue serving as a beacon of knowledge and a source of inspiration for generations to come, we need your support. Our goal is to raise a minimum of $10,000 to help breathe new life into this iconic structure and provide a welcoming and engaging environment for all who visit. Your support will help us make necessary repairs to the historic Mission building, address plumbing issues, and update aging systems to ensure the safety and integrity of the structure.
