From 1910 until 1943, Chinese immigrants to America passed through Angel Island in San Francisco Bay. Unlike other groups, the Chinese were legally discriminated against under an 1882 law called the Chinese Exclusion Act. This program looks at how two women--one an artist, the other a documentary filmmaker--are raising funds and awareness to have the old immigration station restored. Originally broadcast as a segment of the television program: The news hour with Jim Lehrer on September 5, 2000.
