Chen Guangcheng Speech

When I lived in China, activist for the disabled Chen Guangcheng was under house arrest and escaped from his home in my province, Shandong. He made it to the US Embassy in Beijing and applied for the US to take him in as a human rights refugee.

We did take him in and NYU offered him a position.

I followed this story as it happened and found this speech riveting at the RNC a couple seeks back. I’m impressed that he could read Braille in English and give a speech in a second language at such a big event.
