Curator Tour: Y.C. Hong: Advocate for Chinese-American Inclusion
Curator Li Wei Yang leads a private tour of the exhibition "Y.C. Hong: Advocate for Chinese-American Inclusion," which traces the life of an extraordinary figure in the history of early 20th-century Los Angeles


Y.C. Hong: Advocate for Chinese-American Inclusion
Nov 21, 2015 - Mar 22, 2016

The name You Chung ("Y.C.") Hong still elicits respect and pride among longtime residents of Los Angeles' Chinatown. As one of the first Chinese Americans admitted to the State Bar of California, Y.C. Hong was a major figure in the Los Angeles Chinese community during the period of the Chinese Exclusion Act, a federal law in effect from 1882 to 1943 that prohibited the immigration of Chinese laborers to the United States.

Regarded as one of the leading authorities on Chinese immigration, Hong gave testimony in Washington, D.C., on several occasions at congressional and presidential commission hearings. His extensive civil and political engagement included his tenure as president of the Chinese American Citizens Alliance, and he met with political figures such as Ronald Reagan, when Reagan was governor of California, and Soong May-ling, the wife of Chiang Kai-Shek, president of the Republic of China. In addition, Hong was one of the founding members of New Chinatown in Los Angeles, which he helped build after Old Chinatown was razed to make way for Union Station.
