Downtown San Diego’s Asian Pacific Islander History Walking Tour- Presented by Kathleen Dang of CCBA San Diego
This walking tour of Downtown San Diego will provide a brief overview of San Diego's Asian Pacific Islander history. The Gaslamp Quarter and the surrounding areas today is drastically different from what it was in the late 1800s. It once thrived as one of the oldest neighborhoods of color in San Diego. This tour will highlight specific sites of interest with API and BIPOC history. We highly recommend you to find historic sites in your own neighborhood!
