5:00 PM Talk: China's Ideological Spectrum Using data from large-scale surveys in China, Jennifer Pan of Stanford University will share her findings that public preferences in ideology are not simply split along a pro-regime or anti-regime divide in authoritarian contexts. Her research indicates a possible link between China's market reform and social divisions, and their correlations with preferences for nationalism, state intervention in the economy and social values. To understand the consequences of ideology, Pan also tested whether the expression of ideological loyalty and disloyalty among job applicants affects employment prospects among government, SOE, private and foreign firms.

A reception will be held following the talk.

Admission/Cost: FREE but reservation required.

8:00 PM Stage: Having Our Say New Village Arts could have a mega-hit on its hands. Their Having Our Say is easily one of the year's very best thus far. Sadie and Bessie Delaney (Emily Mann based the play on actual African-American sisters) have invited us to celebrate their father's birthday. It's 1993. He passed away long ago. In fact, the sisters have outlived just about everyone else in the family. Sadie is 103, Bessie's 101. They participated in over a century of American history, and givedeeply felt personal accounts of life under Jim Crow laws, the Harlem Renaissance, and Civil Rights. Whilequiet Sadie avoids confrontations,"Queen" Bessie would rather die (and almost does) than cowtow to prejudice. Milena (Sellers) Phillips' Sadie and Sylvia M'Lafi Thompson's Bessie are outstanding. It's as if each plays a bucket list role. And their ritual-like, extensive preparations of a meal are amazing to behold. Christopher Scott Murillo must have imported hisintricately-detailed set from the Delaney's Mt. Vernon home. Alldesign elements jibe beautifully. And it's impossible to believe that Melissa Coleman-Reed made her directorial debut with this truly splendid show.

Admission/Cost: $25
