A collection of anecdotal facts and stories of the Los Angeles Chinatown and the Santa Barbara Chinatown from the eyes of those who lived there and their descendants. From restaurant owners, to community organizers, to business leaders, these stories capture what life was like in Chinatown, their efforts to build the community, and how the community has since then evolved into what we see today.
