“I Want the Wide American Earth: An Asian Pacific American Story” was created by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center and the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES). The exhibition is supported by a grant from the W.K.Kellogg Foundation and is a set of large panels about Asian Pacific American history. It will be at the Tucson Chinese Cultural Center through May 29, 2016.
Desert Leaf magazine (March 2016, pages 42-47) had a good article about what Asian Pacific Americans have endured in America: http://trendmag2.trendoffset.com/publication/?m=12024&l=1. As a former Legislative Aide to the late U.S. Senator Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii) I know this story well.
