Join us as actress Tina Chen recounts the fascinating story of three generations of her mother’s family and their contributions to the history of China.

Learn about a Governor General of six provinces who served under three different Qing Dynasty emperors and the Empress Dowager Tzu Hsi; about his son, an assistant to Sun Yat Sen, who became the first Prime Minister of the Republic of China; and about his granddaughter (Tina Chen’s mother), a Cambridge scholar who, after fleeing to Taiwan during the war, took on secret work that she had to hide even from her husband.
These prominent figures are brought back to life through stories and photographs. Reception with Ms. Chen to follow.
