New film tells the stories of six Chinese Titanic survivors, one of whom lived in Chicago

These stories have been hidden for decades in part because of anti-Chinese laws and discrimination.

When survivors of the Titanic arrived in New York on a rescue ship, six Chinese survivors were sent away. A new documentary called The Six digs into these stories.

Reset talks with the lead researcher of the documentary and a family member of the survivor who learned the winding story of his father’s journey to Chicago.

GUEST: Tom Fong, son of Titanic survivor

Steven Schwankert, co-creator and lead researcher for The Six
