將此活動添加到我的日曆上
 

Before Flower Drum Song exploded on the Broadway stage and silver screen, a golden age of Chinese American nightclubs and performers flourished from the 1930s–1960s. Forbidden City, USA: Chinese American Nightclubs, 1936-1970 is a ground-breaking exhibition that chronicles the history, legacy, glitz and glamour of this little known Chinese American story. Join us for the opening event featuring the Grant Avenue Follies and Jimmy "Jay" Borges, former Forbidden City entertainer, performing songs and dances from the night clubs. Curator and author Arthur Dong will discuss the history and untold stories of Chinese American night clubs in San Francisco. Also special guest appearances by other Chinese American nightclub performers.
A book sale by Readers Books follows the event.
