Journeys 旅途

Boys of the Chinese Educational Mission

Connecticut Historical Society - 1 Elizabeth St.

Please join us for the in-person opening reception for the exhibition, Journeys 旅途 : Boys of the Chinese Educational Mission.

This exhibition honors the 150th anniversary of the Chinese Educational Mission (CEM), a cultural and educational exchange program from 1872 – 1881. Headquartered in Hartford, the CEM enabled 120 Chinese boys, most of whom were barely teenagers, to study in New England with the goal of modernizing China by educating its future leaders abroad. It is a story of hopes, dreams, sacrifice, and the life-changing experience of international exchange.

The reception begins at 2:00 pm.  Light refreshments will be served. Please let us know if you will be able to join us by September 28.
