Stories

These stories feature community members of the greater Chinatown North community. They were collected by Rachel Ishikawa and the students from the Youth Arts Workshop. More stories coming soon!

George Moy is an elder within the Chinatown community who fought to reroute the Vine Street Expressway in the 1960s and 70s. He recounts the struggle during this time, and the sense of unity it brought to the community.

The Youth Arts Workshop at Asian Arts Initiative took their own "Share Your Story" booth around to different areas close to the Chinatown North neighborhood. Here is a collection of some of the stories they collected.
