Traditional Chinese Burial Practices & Range 99

Please join us at our upcoming Talk Story Event!

Community Historian and Preservationist, David Lei, explains traditional Chinese burial practices and beliefs.  He explores Chinese concepts of death and the relationship of rites to assuring proper passage to the afterlife.  Are there two souls?  What is Ying and yang, good and bad?  Can we just feed the hungry ghosts?

Melissa Lin and Jason Fong, two volunteers of the 1882 Foundation, will talk about Range 99 at the Congressional Cemetery in DC. Range 99 was preserved for Chinese to be buried before their bones were exhumed for shipment to China.

WHEN: Sunday, March 2, 1:30-3:30pm

WHERE: Chinese Community Church, 500 I (Eye) Street NW, Washington, D.C.
