Who is Wong Chin Foo?
Wong Chin Foo (Chinese: 王清福; pinyin: Wáng Qīngfú; 1847–1898) was a Chinese-American activist, journalist, lecturer, and one of the most prolific Chinese writers in the American press of the 19th century. Wong, born in Jimo, Shandong Province, China, was among the first Chinese immigrants to be naturalized in 1873. He was dedicated to fighting for the equal rights of Chinese-Americans at the time of the Chinese Exclusion Act. Nowadays Chinese-Americans consider Wong as the Chinese "Dr. Martin Luther King" because of Wong's tremendous efforts and huge sacrifices to defend Chinese-Americans' honor in that difficult time.
