Growing Up in Communist China ~ Thursday, 5/2/24 at 6 PM

Born in China’s western Sichuan province just before Mao’s Cultural Revolution, Lily Tang Williams grew up experiencing extremely poor living conditions, food rationing, social chaos, and Communist indoctrination. In spite of these hardships, in the 1980’s she came to the United States, speaking little English and earned her Master’s degree from University of Texas.

Join us as Lily shares her experiences growing up in Communist China.

This educational presentation for students and adults includes a slide presentation with photographs from Ms. Williams’ years in China, as well as items from her Chinese heritage, including fortune cookies! There will also be time afterward for questions.
