Guide to the Yoland Skeete Research Files on Newark Chinatown
||Yoland Skeete Research Files on Newark Chinatown
||Newark's Chinatown was an ethnic enclave of Chinese immigrants that centered along
Market Street in Newark, New Jersey between the 1870s and the 1940s. At its peak in
1922, the area had nearly 3000 residents, but by the 1950s many Chinese businesses
and families had left the city and relocated to the suburbs. This collection contains
the research files of Yoland Skeete who compiled a wide range of materials as part
of the Newark Chinatown History project presented by the Sumei Multidisciplinary Art
Center. Skeete's files include Chinese immigrant files, photographs, audio and video
tapes, oral histories, T-shirts, newspaper articles on the New Jersey Chinese community,
primary and secondary sources related to Newark Chinatown history, and marketing materials.
It also contains manuscripts and correspondence related to Skeete's research.
