A panel discussion and a musical presentation about the 1989 social revolts in Beijing, China.

The panel will feature Rowena Xiaoqing He (Lecturer, Department of Government, Harvard University) and Fang Zheng (Civil Rights Activist and Tiananmen survivor) and be moderated by Luis Muñiz Argüelles (Professor of Law, University of Puerto Rico and member of the International Academy of Comparative Law).

Virtuoso violinist and Chinese composer Jason Kao Hwang will present his premier of “The Challenge: Tiananmen Square.” A piece that resemblances the cry for free speech in China and the students’ attempts in 1989 to make this demand a reality.

The audience, musicians, composer, conductor, and panelists will provide their perspective about the performance and its relationship to the panel discussion and/or their personal connection with similar events or aesthetic experiences.

Co-sponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU.
