On Being Chinese in America: Inclusion and Exclusion

Saturday, April 11, 2015 to Sunday, April 12, 2015
Spurlock Museum, 600 S. Gregory, Urbana, IL

In 1911, C.C. Wang became the first Chinese PhD recipient at the University of Illinois. After graduation he returned to Beijing and pursued a career as a government official in the new Chinese Republic. In 1928, Wang returned to America to administrate the Boxer Indemnity Educational Fund, which supported Chinese student exchange. Wang brought with him his wife and four children. Today, his grandchildren live throughout Canada and the United States. One grandson, Rocky Chin, Director of the Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity, New York State Division of Human Rights, will share the family's story from China to America and his personal reflections on what it means to be Chinese in America. Refreshments will be available in the Campbell Lobby after the talk. The talk is given in conjunction with special exhibit “East Meets Midwest: The Dawn of the China-Illinois Educational Exchange.”Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG "Obsidian" Sail/Obsidian-University Blue For Sale
