Chinese Roots of Mah Jongg
In this discussion, the Chicago Chinese community shares its history and rich connection with Mah Jongg, the game they warmly refer to as “M. J.” We also talk about differences in methods of play, and the game’s important role in both the Jewish and the Chinese American communities.
This program was created in collaboration with the Chinese-American Museum of Chicago and generously supported by The Covenant Foundation.
Recorded live on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at the Chicago History Museum.
