Assignment: China - The Week that Changed the World

A film reported and narrated by Mike Chinoy

President Richard Nixon's visit to China in February 1972 changed the course of history, reshaping the global balance of power and opening the door to the establishment of relations between the People's Republic and the United States.

It was also a milestone in the history of American journalism. Since the communist revolution of 1949, Beijing had barred virtually all American reporters from China. For the Nixon trip, however, the Chinese agreed to accept nearly 100 journalists, and to allow the most dramatic events - Nixon's arrival in Beijing, Premier Zhou Enlai's welcoming banquet, visits to the Great Wall and the Forbidden City - to be televised live.

Join Mike Chinoy, senior fellow at the University of Southern California's U.S.-China Institute and former CNN senior Asia correspondent and Beijing bureau chief, for a showing of Assignment: China - The Week that Changed the World. The documentary offers a fascinating and previously untold perspective on one of the most important historical moments of the 20th century. Mr. Chinoy, who reports and narrates the film, will discuss it with National Committee President Steve Orlins.

Co-hosted by the College of Arts and Sciences of New York Institute of Technology (NYIT), the program will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 8.
