2:00 AM #ChinaToo: The Feminist Awakening in the People’s Republic Through interviews with the Feminist Five and other leading Chinese activists, journalist and scholar Leta Hong Fincher argues in "Betraying Big Brother" that the popular, broad-based movement poses a unique challenge to China's authoritarian regime today. Her book traces the rise of a new feminist consciousness now finding expression through the #MeToo movement, and describes how the Chinese government has suppressed the history of its own feminist struggles and how the movement against patriarchy could reconfigure China and the world.

Fincher's presentation will be followed by a discussion with Dayo Gore, associate professor in Ethnic Studies and Critical Gender Studies at UC San Diego.

A reception will be held after the event.

8:00 PM Music: Celso Piña Celso Piña is a pioneer in the mixture and fusion of tropical sounds with many of his works having elements of musica norteña, sonidero, ska, reggae, rap/hip-hop, R&B, etc. Piña is also known as El Rebelde del acordeón or the Cacique de la Campana.

In 1980, Celso Piña bought his first accordion and was introduced to the world of cumbia. He spent numerous hours of practice and work in the popular district of Colonia Independencia, south of the city of Monterrey, Mexico. Having lived for a majority of his life there, he titled one of his songs Mi colonia Independencia, which is located at the heavily populated area of Cerro de la Campana at Monterrey.

Piña's group decided to change their musical rhythm to encompass a more tropical style during the mid-1980s and switch into the genre of cumbia, and became what today is Celso Piña y su Ronda Bogotá.

Piña taught himself how to play the accordion with no formal training. As a result he was able to create the unique sound he is well known for.

This has enabled him to record and perform with international artists such as Café Tacuba, Control Machete, Bacilos, El Gran Silencio, Julieta Venegas, Ely Guerra, Benny Ibarra, Lila Downs, Alex Lora, Lupe Esparza, Eugenia León, Aleks Syntek, Gloria Trevi, Laura León, Natalia Lafourcade, Nicho Hinojosa, Flaco Jiménez, Alejandro Markovich, Sargento García and many others…
