History on the Side: Long Story Short
brochure: jan history on side long story
In anticipation of the exhibit RACE: Are We So Different?, enjoy this film from Academy Award-nominated director Christine Choy.  This is the story of Larry and Trudie Long, a popular husband-and-wife nightclub act of the '40s and '50s. Known as "The Leungs," a more Chinese-sounding name, they rose in popularity performing a mix of tap dancing, witty repartee, and "Chinaman" caricatures that both played to and undermined the racist attitudes of the day.
