DECEMBER 2003 NEWS

It is our heartfelt hope that your holiday season has been filled with joy and good cheer for you and loved ones during these tumultous times. It is, however, during difficult times where one must count and treasure the blessings that one has in one's life.

As 2003 ends, we would like to highlight some of the past entertainment pioneers that have often been unfortunately forgotten by the American and Asian American communities.

FEATURED ARTISTS & LEADERS

ANNA MAY WONG

 

 
Her complexion was described as "aa rose blushing through old ivory;" she was beautiful, tall (5'7"), slender, and Chinese-American. The last fact kept her from attaining the highest echelon among Hollywood's pantheon of stars, but it did not affect her popularity, nor keep her from becoming a household name.

She was Anna May Wong, nee Wong Liu Tsong, a name which translates to "Frosted Yellow Willows," and she was born, appropriately enough, on Flower Street in Los Angeles' Chinatown on 3 January 1905, above her father's laundry.

DALIP SAUND

 

 

Congressman Dalip Singh Saund as the first among Asian Americans and also the first Indian American to be elected to the US Congress.

Thus far, he is the only Indian American who has been elected to this honorable position.

He was first elected in 1956 from 29th congressional district comprising of Riverside and Imperial Counties of California and was re-elected twice.

He did set a precedent for many Asians to follow in the U.S. Congress. He remains a beacon of hope and an example for many Indian Americans to succeed him.

BRUCE LEE

 

 

The man, the myth and the legend? It is an incontestable fact that Bruce Lee was a great martial artist. His on and off screen persona oozed with charismatic flair making him one of the most popular action hero's of his time. In death, his popularity seemed only to grow as legends.

Bruce had goals and ambitions that drove him to levels of physical agility, strength and flexibility that none have been able to compare to as of yet.

ASIAN COMEDY NIGHTS
If the Asian comedy nights lack anything at all, it's a fully developed atmosphere a distinct vibe like the nightclub air of Mo Betta Mundays or the freshly scrubbed date-night feel of Latino Monday, but that can't stop it from providing the best 1 a.m. laughs in the city and an important opportunity for Asian American comedians.
