Chinese Humiliation Parade in New York City in 1938


Twelve thousand Chinese people from all parts of the Metropolitan area closed their laundries and other businesses to take part in the largest demonstration ever staged in the United States. It observed China’s “National Humiliation Day,” the annual holiday on which China’s people pause to recall Japan’s humiliating twenty-one demands of May 9, 1915.
