It was my pleasure to welcome Judge Michael Kwan from the Utah this morning. As the president of the Chinese Railroad Workers Descendants Association, we heard from Judge Kwan about a remarkable time in American history when legions of Chinese and Chinese Americans built the Transcontinental Railroad. They endured hardships, exploitation and discrimination -and in the process transformed America.
Don't forget to mark on your calendar next year's annual Golden Spike Conference marking the 150th anniversary of the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad.
We featured the Confucius Moment and Treasures of China, too.
I'd like to take this occasion to wish our American listeners around the world a Happy Fourth of July; this coming Wednesday will mark 242 years of American independence. Safe celebrations and travels to all!
