Black in China

Aaron Vessup
A black man experiences racism - in China and the United States. Black in China tells the dynamic story of Aaron Vessup, a Black American teacher who, after decades of living in the shadow of America’s racism, makes the radical decision to travel 8,000 miles to find a new future as an educator in China. Aaron's story spans the gulf between the crooked streets of South-Central LA and the crowded lanes of modern Beijing, providing a rich and intimate view of China today through the eyes of a Black man. Aaron grapples with issues of race and history in both America and China, exploring why he would prefer to be “Black Chinese”, not “Black American.”

While We're Here

Editors: Alec Ash and Tom Pellman
Anyone who has lived in China has stories to tell. For foreigners and Chinese alike, this is a land that transforms itself every day, with something to write about on every corner. Collected in this anthology are 33 contributions, a mix of narrative non-fiction, fiction and poetry, from the writers' colony the Anthill (theanthill.org). Together, they offer glimpses into this quicksilver country—by turns funny, touching and bizarre. Whether we stay or leave, the stories remain.
