A new performance in the Chinese Historical Society of America History Alive! series:
"Sun Yat-Sen and the Three People’s Principles."
Featuring the unique story of Dr. Sun’s life in America before returning to be the first provisional President of the Republic of China, Dr. Sun is a Chautauquan museum theater presentation by renowned writer, historian and performer, CHSA Artist-in-Residence Charlie Chin.
This performance will illuminate the connection between the modern history of China with the history of Chinese American communities as well as the link between the democratic ideas pursued in the post American Civil War era and the aspirations of Chinese both in China and here in America. This Centennial of the 1911 Chinese Revolution is a key moment in Chinese American history shared by Chinese throughout the global diaspora.
