Zhangyang (Charlie) Xie (C'24), a Summer Humanities intern in the Kislak Center and University Archives during the summer of 2022, will present his research relating to two new Kislak Center acquisitions: Chinese Communist posters from the 1960s supporting the Civil Rights struggle in the United States. These posters help to reveal a broader story of Afro-Sino and African American-Sino relations in the 1960's and 1970s.
