These strong young women allow us to grasp what it is like to come-of-age in today's America as transracial adoptees. By witnessing their struggle with self identity, we ourselves pause to consider who we are - both as individuals and as a nation of immigrants.
During the late-nineteenth and twentieth-centuries the area in and around the Santa Barbara Presidio was occupied by communities of Chinese and Japanese, coexisting side by side in what was a unique and culturally rich neighborhood. In 2009, SBTHP launched "Sharing Our Common Ground" with a three-part community lecture series discussing the Asian American history in the Presidio Neighborhood and greater Santa Barbara area. SBTHP continues "Sharing Our Common Ground: Asian American History in Santa Barbara County" with a three-part summer film series focusing on Chinese, Japanese American communities.
