In Memoriam: Jadin Wong (1913-2010)

If someone embodied the phrase “work it”, that someone might be Jadin Wong. As a sexy Asian American woman in the early 20th century, she capitalized on being a sexy Asian American woman. She was a dancer, comedian, actress, and talent agent, depending on where the industry was headed.

Reading about her, looking at her pictures, I get the feeling that she didn’t bother with trivial things like social convention, or other people’s opinions of her. She did exactly what she wanted.

For a more factual description of Jadin Wong, read Second Generation’s piece.
