Legacy & Lineage: Francis Wong

"Growing up in the 60's and 70's, there was a very powerful relationship between the making of art and the making of social change. Of course, at the center of that was the black arts movement." Learn how Francis Wong involved himself in the Asian American movement through the change-making power of jazz to the making of 945 ArtSpace.
