'Mulberry Child' Author to Speak, Screen Film during ECC's Women's History Month Celebrations


Byline: Submitted by ECC

Author and cultural expert Jian Ping will return to Elgin Community College for several free events that are part of the college's celebration of Women's History Month this month.

Ping, who wrote the book 'Mulberry Child,' grew up during the time of the Chinese Cultural Revolution and lived through the chaos, hardship and deprivation that engulfed China. Millions of lives were destroyed and reputations ruined during that period from 1966 to 1976.

On Tuesday, March 6, Ping will present 'From China to Chicago: A Mother/Daughter Journey' from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. in the ECC Advanced Technology Center auditorium, 1700 Spartan Drive, Elgin. Her presentation will focus not only on the historical impact of China's Cultural Revolution depicted in 'Mulberry Child,' but the clear disconnect between Ping and her American-raised, free-spirited daughter, Lisa Xia, who does not identify with nor has much interest in her Chinese roots.

In addition to her presentation, Ping will facilitate a discussion about the relationships between immigrant parents and their American-born children during an 'Immigrant Women Roundtable' from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in the Student Resource Center community room.

This annual event gathers women immigrants from ECC and the community who tell their stories of coming to the United States.

On Wednesday, March 7, a screening of 'Mulberry Child' will be held from 7 to 9:30 p.m. in the ATC Auditorium. Based on Ping's book, the film depicts her upbringing and her struggles to connect with her daughter. Ping and her daughter will hold an audience discussion after the film.

Other events during Women's History Month include the following. All events are free and open to the public, unless noted. For information, call the Student Life Office at (847) 214-7370.
