In 1949, Mao Zedong’s Communist Revolution took hold in China. The result of Mao’s so-called ‘Great Leap Forward’ resulted in 45 million dead. Lily Tang Williams grew up under the tyranny of Mao. She escaped Communist China and came to the United States of America with $100 to her name.
She is now a New Hampshire congressional candidate. Lily shares a deeply important history lesson with us and gives her insight regarding what she sees as the shadow of tyranny growing in America today. If we do not remember history we are doomed to repeat it.
