Angel Island Liberty Association

by Justseeds Author

The Angel Island Liberty Association (or "Self-Governing Association") was a mutual-aid society run by Chinese detainees at the Angel Island Immigration Station from 1922 to about 1952. With the help of Chinese American kitchen staff, the Association smuggled letters to help detainees pass detailed immigration interrogations. Letters were folded inside wax paper and taped to the bottom of dishes.
