Storyboard Text

  • Hi! I'm Lisa See, a Chinese immigrant. I am the granddaughter of Fong See, who came to America searching for a better life, and we've just arrived at Angel Island!
  • It's a cold and rainy night here on the island. Hopefully I will be treated right in processing!
  • Ellis Island, the chief immigration center in New York Harbor would've treated me much better.
  • Ugh. I knew this would happen because of the bad effects of the melting pot, or the blending of cultures.
  • Of course Nativism has to exclude people like me. It favors only the native-born people, and makes the lives of Chinese people like me worse.
  • Could it get any worse. The Chinese Exclusion Act has been enacted, and that means my brother cannot live here like he was supposed to in the future.
  • And from then on, Fong See had to endure the troubles of exclusion, just trying to make a living in America.
