The Dong Family: NBC News

In 1939, amidst discriminatory housing laws in Coronado, California, the Dong family faced rejection in their search for a home due to their Chinese heritage. However, Emma and Gus Thompson, a Black couple born into slavery, extended a helping hand when nobody else would. This gesture allowed the Dongs to rent and later purchase their property. Now, in a heartwarming display of gratitude and community support, the Dongs are donating $5 million to support Black college students, a gesture inspired by the Thompsons’ kindness.

Janice Dong, at 86 years old, reflects on the significance of their plan, expressing hope that their contribution will enable students to pursue higher education opportunities they might otherwise miss.
Lloyd Dong Jr., echoing his sister’s sentiment, emphasizes the debt of gratitude owed to the Thompsons, acknowledging their pivotal role in providing his family with a foothold in American society.
The Dong family’s journey mirrors the trials and triumphs of countless marginalized communities, underscoring the importance of compassion and solidarity in overcoming adversity. As they prepare to sell their Coronado properties, including the Thompsons’ former home, Ron and Janice Dong are determined to pay forward the kindness they once received.

Their decision to donate aligns with a broader movement towards reparations and social justice, highlighting the power of individual acts of kindness to ripple through generations and inspire meaningful change.
In honoring the Thompsons’ legacy and embracing the spirit of community support, the Dong family exemplifies the transformative impact of human kindness and the enduring power of gratitude to bridge divides and uplift communities.
