Underrated & Overlooked Figures in Chinese History | The Hutong

We all know about Mao and Sun Yat-sen, and people love to talk about the First Emperor Qin Shihuang and his walls, but who are the important figures in Chinese history we tend to overlook? Part of The Hutong’s Hacked History series, this public lecture and discussion looks at five people who made important contributions to Chinese history but who somehow failed to get the credit they deserved.
