Scott Seligman Book Talk on The First Chinese American: The Remarkable Life of Wong Chin Foo

Sunday, Jun 23, 2013 3:00p

The First Chinese American: The Remarkable Story of Wong Chin Foo is the first biography ever written about Wong Chin Foo (1847-1898). Wong was an activist whose story is a forgotten chapter in the struggle for equal rights for all in America. Wong defended Chinese tirelessly against the vicious racial stereotypes that eventually resulted in the passage of the Exclusion Act, and he led a campaign against the provision in that law that rendered Chinese ineligible for citizenship.
