Description

This article covers an event at the University of Richmond where Chinese students celebrated the birth of the Chinese Republic, and rendered homage to their homeland. The article talks about China, honing in on the Xinhai Revolution leading to the creation of the Republic of China. The Cultural Revolution was a revolution that overthrew China’s imperial dynasty and established the Republic of China on October 10, 1911. The article discusses the event held by the Chinese students at the University as an inspiring and patriotic program. Additionally, the article talks about speakers of the event, which included remarks by Dr. Boatwright. An accompanying photograph depicts Chinese students and University administration and staff marching together in the parade. Students carry the five-colored flag, used by the Republic of China from 1912 to 1928, symbolizing the five races or ethnic groups harmoniously existing in a united China.
