About this title

Synopsis:

A Legacy Magnified: A Generation of Chinese Americans in Southern California, 1980’s-2010’s is a monumental publication jointly authored by a team of renowned group of writers consisting of 17 chapters, nearly 1 million words, and more than 1,300 photographs, many of which are collected from historical archives. It is an unprecedented endeavor undertaken by more than 500 volunteers who were privileged to have witnessed the drastic and amazing transformation of Chinese American communities in Southern California during the critical three decades, from the 1980’s to the 2010’s. This handsome volume encompasses an historical account of multifarious realms of community development, including various aspects of culture, history, political participation, economic growth, businesses, education, language, sports, mass media, science and technology, scholarly research, literature, music, dance, theatre and other performing arts, among other subjects. This book is substantial, and is dedicated to “All Chinese of past, present, and future generations who contribute to the world culture by incorporating the quintessence of Chinese civilization and their heritage.”

Its purpose was to continue the effort of American East Asian Culture and Education Center to bring to conclusion the publication of A Legacy Magnified: A Generation of Chinese American in Southern California, 1980’s-2010’s with additional expertise. It is our hope to continue to document the successes and accomplishments achieved by Chinese Americans in the Southland during that past three decades.

Ma, Cathy Kit-yee Choi, Frances Wang, William S. Chin, Shiyun Chung, and honorary members such as Huibao Xu, Karen Kuo-Limb, Ming Bin Kuo, Joseph Y. Hsu, Ellen Fu, Leo Chu, Richard Y. Koo, Tung Wang, Matthew Yuan-Ching Lin, and Tom Tsong-ming Liaw, all leaders of various community organizations and associations. They each rendered significant service and support. The roles of the Board members are rotated annually. The current members are: Evans Y. Lam (President), May Chen (Chief Executive Officer), Karen Chen (VP), Michael G. Cheung (VP), Paul Shao-Han Sher (Treasurer), Shiyun Chung (Secretary), Sandy Ho (PR), William S.
