Once again after an almost record-setting gap in the action, we look at a great but unknown Chinese American, Wong Chin Foo (王清福). Though not a well-known person from history, he nonetheless played a major role during the 1880’s and 1890’s fighting against the racist anti-Chinese immigration laws passed by the U.S. Congress. Author Scott Seligman’s book, The First Chinese American tells the whole story of Wong Chin Foo and his times. In this episode we examine the highlights of this remarkable life.
