Description:

A Chinaman's Chance: One Family's Journey and the Chinese American Dream
Eric Liu

In conversation with Gregory Rodriguez, Executive Director, Zócalo Public Square

Weaving history, journalism, and memoir, the author of The Accidental Asian and founder of Citizen University explores the parallel rise of China and the Chinese American—how Chinese immigrants have exceled despite racism and xenophobia, and how they reconcile competing beliefs about what constitutes success, virtue, and belonging in a time of deep flux. From Confucius to the Constitution, Liu discusses his new collection of personal essays that provide insight into the evolving Chinese American dream.
