What does the history of Angel Island mean to the AAPI community?
How might we understand Angel Island as a site for continuing reflections on AAPI identities and advocacy toward racial equity?
As a way to observe the Qingming festival, which is traditionally a time for Chinese ethnics globally to sweep the tombs of their ancestors, we will be taking a journey of remembrance to Angel Island. We will take the 10am ferry from Tiburon, spend the day at Angel Island, and return to Marin with the 3:30pm ferry. Besides a docent-guided tour of the historic Angel Island facility, we will also spend some time as a group to reflect and share our thoughts. Before the visit, we will share with all registrants a link to view Felicia Lowe’s film “Carved in Silence,” as well as additional references on the significance of ancestor veneration in AAPI communities and cultures.
