New-York Historical Society | 22 Lewd Chinese Women: A Trial Reenactment
New-York History Museum
What ever became of the 22 Chinese women that landed on the shores of San Francisco in 1874 only to be detained for their lewdness?
You might remember that on October 18, the Honorable Denny Chin and his wife Kathy Hirata Chin led yet another performance of the popular trial re-enactment “22 Lewd Chinese Women: A Trial Reenactment,” this time a shortened version at the New York Historical Society. Thanks to the resourcefulness of the New York Historical Society, we can bring you the gift of this podcast, which features not only many members of our AABANY cast, but also a question-and-answer session with Hon. Denny Chin, Kathy Hirata Chin, Vince Chang, and David Weinberg. For anyone who has not yet had their daily dose of human rights, sex trafficking, and federalism, we invite you to listen.
