We’ll visit Italy’s roots in Holy Roman Empire, its rich artistic and scientific contributions of the Renaissance, its role during and after World War II, and its economic and political struggles over the past decade.

China’s Human Rights Struggle
Thirty years ago, China’s human rights issues were showcased to the world by the bloody crackdown on peaceful protesters in Tiananmen Square. Join Active Minds as we look at how modern China’s economic growth has often come at the expense of human rights. We will highlight the ways in which the Chinese has repressed political dissent, as well as ways in which ethnic minorities have been negatively impacted.
