Who is Anna May Wong, the first Asian American on U.S. currency?
By Bryan Pietsch of the Washington Post
Wong is regarded as Hollywood’s first Asian American movie star. The third-generation American’s career took off at a time of widespread anti-Asian xenophobia, with the Chinese Exclusion Act still in effect. She gained fame for her roles in silent films like “The Toll of the Sea” (1922) — one of the first Technicolor movies — and “The Thief of Bagdad” (1924).
This guide is intended to provide resources for learning to combat structural racism and white supremacy, both internally and in your community.
