Riverside Asian American Walking Tour – Downtown Edition

May 19 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

$12

Discover Downtown Riverside’s hidden Asian American gems and history. Along the way, you will learn how the city’s first Chinese quarter vanished, how one family’s children helped them prevail in a landmark civil rights’ case, and how the first organized Korean American settlement site came to be in Riverside. Pioneering Asian American immigrants struggled to belong, while maintaining their cultural identities.
