Ever since 1948 when Penny Wong became the first Miss Chinatown, hundreds of young women around the country have vied for the title to be recognized and serve as ambassadors of our Chinese culture and communities.

Join the Chinese American Museum DC (CAMDC) and former Miss Chinatowns, Cynthia Yee (1967), Rose Chung (1981), Karen Yang (2017) and Lauren Yang (2020) on Sunday, March 26, 2023, 6pm ET (3pm PT) as they share their experiences and perspectives on how the pageant has adapted to changes within Chinese American communities. The conversation will be moderated by documentary film producer-director Felicia Lowe, Miss Congeniality (1965).
