Abstract

Both Ellis and Angel Island have interesting connections with the concept of race in the United States. To better show others and inform ourselves about these important parts of history we have researched several key points. We examined the effects of administering racially biased IQ testing and the required “ideal” physical traits, and the desire of immigrants to assimilate into society. Lastly, we have illustrated the legacy of these two influential locations, which was a shift in racial thought, due to a changing immigrant demographic.
