This program will be conducted in English.
How much do you know about Maryland, one of the original thirteen states of America? Did you know that it was founded as a refuge for Catholics who had been persecuted in England? Did you know that Maryland is famous around America for its seafood, especially its crab cakes, oysters, and striped bass? Maryland has a landscape so diverse, with everything from beaches, sand dunes, and marshlands, that the state is nicknamed “America in miniature.” What else does this unique state have to offer tourists and students of American culture?
Come and join us at the Beijing American Center to hear from a native of Maryland about what it was like to grow up in a state bordered by both Washington DC and the ocean. Maryland has beautiful parks, vibrant cities, stunning shorelines, and a story that reflects many of the largest issues in American history. Our speaker will teach you the history and culture of the state that was the location of the deadliest single-day battle in American history, was immortalized in the TV show “The Wire,” and was where the American national anthem “The Star Spangled Banner” was written.
