Join MOCA for a labor-themed tour of our core exhibition With a Single Step: Stories in the Making of America. Using photographs, oral histories, and primary sources, explore labor history through the lens of the Chinese American worker from the 1800s to the present. Along the way, consider the impact of policy and public imagination on Chinese American workers on the railroads, in laundries, on the garment shop floor, and elsewhere. Together, reflect on the ways workers challenged the infrastructures they were inextricably a part of.


Public gallery tours occur at 3pm every Saturday and are free with admission.Tours meet in the museum's lobby.
