MVAAC Movie Event

May 30, 2019

Please join us as we celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month with a Movie Screening of Honor and Duty: The Mississippi Delta Chinese. This will take place on Thursday, May 30, 2019 at 2:00 PM at Monmouth County Library Headquarters - 125 Symmes Drive, Manalapan, NJ.

Honor and Duty: The Mississippi Delta is a documentary that took over 20 years to produce, and focuses on the almost unknown Chinese community in the heart of the Deep South. The Chinese men from the Delta made vital contributions to the US war effort in WWII. The transformational nature of their participation helped in the development of the community in the decades immediately after the war, and these Chinese Delta families made major contributions to the state of Mississippi and beyond.

This program will start with an introduction by Advocate and Community Volunteer, Ms. Shirley Ng, of Manalapan Township TV Network and American Legion Lt. B.R. Kimlau Chinese Memorial Post 1291. A short Q&A session will follow with Past National Commander Mr. Fang Wong, the first Asian American to have served in this position: Commander of Sons of American Legion, Mr. Corky Lee and Past Commander, Mr. Kenneth Wong, all from American Legion L.t.  B.R. Kimlau Chinese Memorial Post 1291.

This program has been generously co-sponsored with Manalapan Veterans Affairs Advisory Committee.
