OCU Professors to Give China Culture Presentation

Two Oklahoma City University professors who recently returned from a tour of China will give a presentation featuring photographs and insight from their trip at 7 p.m. Nov. 3 in the Bishop W. Angie Smith Chapel on N.W. 23rd Street between Blackwelder and Kentucky avenues. The presentation is free to the public.

Law professor Phyllis Bernard and religion professor Dann May took a three-week cultural tour of China in the spring. Their travels included the temple complexes and grave sites of Confucius and Mencius, Tiananmen Square, the “Forbidden City” in Beijing, the Temple of Heaven, the Great Wall at Juyong Pass and the Stone Forest. The professors also took a boat trip down the Li River, hiked Mount Tai Shan and explored Buddhist, Confucian and Daoist temples.

Asian refreshments will be served at the presentation. For more information call May at (405) 208-5175 or Cathy Bewley at (405) 208-5284.
