During World War II, thousands of workers, including many Blacks from the Deep South, moved to Marin County to work in the shipyards at Marinship. There they built the ships that helped the war effort. Marin City was created to house the huge influx of workers and their families from all across the country. It was the first racially integrated housing complex in the United States
Based on oral histories, Marin City Memories tells the story of Marin City through the voices of the Black workers who lived there.
