Munson Kwok: Chinatown Advocate and Community Leader
One cannot mention Chinatown without referencing one of its most ardent advocates and community leaders, Munson A. Kwok. Throughout his years of public service, he has presided over every imaginable Chinese American organization, including the Chinese Citizen Alliance, the Chinese Historical Society, the Chinese Benevolent Consolidated Association, and the Chinese American Museum, to name just a few. In fact, it was Kwok who gave us the key to understanding the rich, varied and contradictory history of Chinatown by introducing us to those who have made it their lifeblood. We sat down with Munson A. Kwok to discuss the the need and civic importance of "reconnecting" the neighborhood - Chinatown - to the Los Angeles River.
