Black in China tells the dynamic story of Aaron Vessup, a Black American teacher who, after decades of living in the shadow of America’s racism, makes the radical decision to travel 8,000 miles to find a new future as an educator in China. Aaron’s story spans the gulf between the crooked streets of South-Central LA and the crowded lanes of modern Beijing, providing a rich and intimate view of China today through the eyes of a Black man. Aaron grapples with issues of race and history in both America and China, exploring why he would prefer to be “Black Chinese”, not “Black American”.
