APA Heritage Month Fact

May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.  From May 12, 2008 – May 26, 2008 we will post facts related to the Asian Pacific American cultures.  We will hold a contest at the end of the month based on the facts.  Here is an image of what the winner will get so far:

Fact for the day:

The origination of the month started as a congressional bill for Asian Pacific American Heritage week in 1977 which later trascended into a month long celebration in 1990. 

The reason the month of May was selected is to commemorate the first Japanese immigrant on May 7, 1843 and the the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869.
