Event description

Description

San Francisco’s Chinatown may be a tourist attraction, but Oakland’s is a vital economic force, ever changing in social dynamics and cultural diversity. Learn about this fascinating neighborhood and its evolution to “Asiatown” with many immigrants from Southeast Asian countries. In addition to the architectural stock, we explore the history, cultural bases, changing demographics and food of this community . Some interiors, time permitting. Optional group lunch after. A brisk level walk, some stairs.

Leader: Ernest Chann is a past President of the Chinese Historical Society of America, and has been a board member of the Alameda County Historical Society. In addition to leading this tour for OHA, Ernie is also an active docent with Oakland Museum History Division.

This event is sponsored by the Oakland Heritage Alliance. Join or renew OHA membership for a $10 discount off member price.
