July Meeting: Classic Hollywood’s Forgotten Superstars: Anna May Wong and Sessue Hayakawa

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on June 23, 2015 by Larry

The Golden Age of Hollywood conjures up many names, but often missing are Anna May Wong and Sessue Hayakawa.  They were the only two Asian actors to be regularly cast in film before 1940 and wildly popular in their time.  Jen Wang will talk about how they dazzled American audiences only to be ultimately driven away by prejudice and stereotypes.

Meeting Time: Saturday, July 11, 2015 2:00pm – 4:00pm

Location: The Manske Library (Meeting Room), 13613 Webb Chapel, Farmers Branch, Texas 75234
