Immigrant Voices

Immigrant Voices, a project of the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation, provides a platform to hear "personal stories of immigrants to the Pacific Coast, from Angel Island Immigration Station detainees to those arriving today." These narratives, comprised of pictures and text, share intimate themes across the human experience: pain and hope, family and fear, and education and discrimination, among others. Under the Discover tab readers can explore stories by country, year of arrival, and theme. The advanced search feature allows for more specific filters (including the ability to enter a search term). Readers are also welcome to scroll through all stories, absent any filtering. Many stories are told from the perspective of family members who recount oral histories passed down through generations. Collectively, these narratives add context and dimension to historical moments. In addition to reading and honoring the stories included on the site, users can also submit their own tale (note that one must register and create an account to do so).
