Coming Up Next: The Mississippi Delta Chinese, American Story, with E. Samantha Cheng and Dr. Gwendolyn Gong

Tune in this coming Saturday, July 2, 2016 for a show like no other on Marvels of China: Pathways to the Pacific Rim

We'll be celebrating America's July 4 Independence Day and introducing you to E. Samantha Cheng and Dr. Gwendolyn Gong, executive producers of Honor & Duty: The Mississippi Delta Chinese. I was privileged to attend the recent New York screening at this documentary at the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) in Chinatown. 

This three-part documentary series tells the story of an almost forgotten community of Chinese in America's Deep South. It is an American story like no other anywhere. 

The story of Chinese immigration and integration into the Mississippi Delta region begins just after the American Civil War with the introduction of 16 Chinese men. How did this community evolve and proper within the segregated South? What lessons does this story provide for immigrants today?

Honor and Duty: The Mississippi Delta Chinese documentary series focuses on people who built an enduring kinship through small town markets and grocery stores drawing in part on the memories of the patriotic Chinese World War II veterans who lived in this area and stepped forward to serve. 

Simultaneously, E. Samantha Cheng will be speaking from Washington, D.C., USA, and Dr. Gwendolyn Gong will be with us from Hong Kong, China. 

Be sure to tune in this coming Saturday morning, July 2, 2016 starting at 10:30 a.m. Eastern USA Time/ 10:30 p.m. China Time on AM1490 WGCH and everywhere at
