通告 Announcement: 陈凯UCLA演讲 10/18/2016 at 6:00 pm
UCLA Republican Students Event: October 18, 2016 at 6:00 pm. (Royce Hall room 156)
I will have a speech for UCLA Republican students on October 18, 2016 at 6:00 pm. (Royce Hall room 156). You all are welcome to attend. This will mark my first return speech to my UCLA alma mater since the 1989 Tiananmen Massacre.
It just happened that when I watched the recent induction ceremony of NBA's Hall of Fame with Yao Ming on TV, there was a small segment about China's basketball in the 1970s. There I was in a game with my teammates such as Mu. I suddenly recognized and revisited myself on the court in that segment (1978 Beijing International Invitational Tournament with Chinese "August 1st Team" against the Philippines). History somehow always seems to chase me and remind me of my life's purpose and destiny.
Best wishes and many thanks for being my friends and comrades in fight for freedom.
