Saturday, November 3, 2:00 pm
Join us to learn about the Chinese immigration experience from the late 1800s to the 1950s.
The program includes a presentation by two docents (Marian Seiki and Myrna Yee) representing the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation (AIISF). We will also hear an actual first-hand account from former Angel Island detainee, William Mock. CHCP members (Cynthia Chang, Ann Wong, and Al Low) will also comment on their own or their family’s immigration experiences.
Light refreshments will be served.
Sponsored by the Chinese Historical & Cultural Project & the Friends of the Saratoga Libraries.
