My name is Margery Gordon and I have been working as an educator for more than 30 years in the Smithsonian, mostly at NMNH. This is a picture of me and Mr. Kwon.
So you might ask:”What is a nice Jewish girl doing wrapped up in these programs?” To answer: The experience has changed my life—from observing Vichai’s caring to organize an Asian American festival each year, to admiring Nit’s prowess carving fruit or observing Mr. Kwon’s expert virtuosity with Korean calligraphy; I proudly celebrate my Asian-Pacific American friends and their achievements.
