This free, virtual tour of the ship Star of Alaska (Balclutha) will explore the ideas of equality and opportunity in the Alaskan fish canneries of the early 20th century. Segregated by race and class, the fisherman and cannery workers experienced very different on-board working and living conditions.
Their stories are a reminder that ships transport not only people and goods, but also cultures and their values.
