The Remarkable
Life of 

Wong Chin Foo

 

Wong ran the Chinese Equal Rights League from New York's Bible House - an ironic choice, given his anti-Christian sentiments.

Wong sometimes feared for his life when he preached against gambling, opium smoking and prostitution, enterprises often under the control of his fellow Chinese.

 
 

In 1869-70, Wong attended Lewisburg Academy, now Pennsylvania's Bucknell University. The college's alumni magazine ran a cover story on him in the spring of 2013.

Two of Wong Chin Foo's great-great grandchildren, James Wong and Wang Jian, attended a book talk at the Chinese Historical Society in San Francisco.
