Additional information:

The afternoon Master's Chai will be a members-only event with tea plus light refreshments (dim sum) and an informal discussion/fireside chat about Chinese American cultural identity and our own individual journeys vs. the China and US political, social, and economic topics Eric will be covering with the general public later as a speaker at the World Affairs Council. Alumni are welcome to attend either or both events. 

Organized jointly by YCSF, YCSV, and AAAYA in partnership with the Chinese Historical Society of America Museum, the oldest and largest organization in the country dedicated to the interpretation, promotion, and preservation of the social, cultural and political history and contributions of the Chinese in America and the World Affairs Council of Northern California, engaging the globally minded with ideas that stimulate, issues that matter, and leaders who inspire.

More about A CHINAMAN'S CHANCE: With humor, honesty, and intelligence, Liu explores the complex dimensions of American identity against the backdrop of China and America through searching personal essays in which he traces his family's history, culture, and future. He considers the meaning of Confucius in modern life; the unseen role of Chinese Americans in shaping how we read the Constitution; his daughter's efforts to select aspects of her Chinese inheritance; and the all too-American idea of tiger parenting. A CHINAMAN'S CHANCE offers reflections of one Chinaman on the role of chance in his own family's journey and on the chance America still has to be something greater than the sum of its many tinted parts.
