Angel Island Walk: Labor, Imperialism & Immigration
With James Dexter-Lee
This walk will be 5 miles, 5 hours, including stops.
Angel Island is the largest island in San Francisco Bay, 740 acres of California State Park. Located strategically just inside the Golden Gate, near the beautiful Marin Headlands, Angel Island has unparalleled views of the Bay Area.
The heritage of Angel Island lies primarily in its human history; a story that accompanies not only the history of the Bay Area and California but also the military, political, economic and social legacy of the United States in the 19th and 20th centuries. Come and explore this unique place with park volunteer and historian James Dexter-Lee. We will cover Native Americans to the Gold Rush, Angel Island at war (Civil War to Cold War), the U.S. Immigration Station (Labor & Racism), the Marine Hospital Service and more.
Bring lunch, liquids, sun protection, layers and your walking shoes! (Optional $5 for admission to U.S. Immigration Station, cash or check, pay as you enter.)
