Author Wen Huang was in Beijing during the Tiananmen Square massacre

Twenty five years ago, the Chinese government violently suppressed pro-democracy, anti-corruption student protests in Beijing's Tiananmen Square. Hundreds were killed and thousands were injured. Chicago-based writer and journalist, Wen Huang, was in Beijing during the 1989 protests. He'll tell us how that event changed China. Huang is author of "The Little Red Guard" and "A Death in the Lucky Holiday Hotel." (Photo courtesy of Wen Huang: Pictured second from right, author Wen Huang protests in Tiananmen in 1989.)
