Remembering actress Anna May Wong on her birthday

Find a book excerpt here.

We revisit Scott Tong’s conversation with author Yunte Huang about Huang’s book “Daughter of the Dragon” from August 2023.

The book tells the story of Anna May Wong, a Chinese-American actress in the early 20th century who attained stardom but also was continually stereotyped throughout her career. Wong was born in Los Angeles on this day in 1905.
