The extraordinary experiences of Amei Li in the Cultural Revolution

  • She was defined as “Black”
  • The Party Secretary at her school was murdered by Red Guards while she was next door
  • Her home was ransacked and she was sent to live in a village in a remote part of China

These are among the sometimes horrible things that happened to her and people she knew.

Amei lives in Sydney. Her book describing these events in more detail is Pink Flower – Growing Up in Mao’s China.
