Jackie Kong as Community Activist:

Ever wonder what it’s like to be Asian-American in America? “I wanted to do something to help the community. Ethnicity and their voices were being shut-out of the television airwaves at the time. So, we created KARAOKE NIGHTS to showcase Asian-American talent via Internet Webisodes” . It’s the 1st TV Show written entirely by a team of 7 Asian-American writers. It created a voice and window into the community, at a time when we were being shut out…we were way ahead of my time. You can watch the shows now – click on the above images for Episode #1 - “Meet the Lee Family” or Episode #2 - “Saving the Business”.
