What is Shen Yun, and why does the Chinese Communist Party try so hard to stop its performances?

How is this related to other attempts by the Chinese regime to influence American companies?

And, how is this part of the Communist Party’s broader effort to control the narrative about China abroad and suppress dissenting voices?

This is American Thought Leaders 🇺🇸, and I’m Jan Jekielek.

In this episode, we’ll sit down with Leeshai Lemish, who has been an emcee with Shen Yun Performing Arts since its inception in late 2006.

American Thought Leaders is an Epoch Times show available on Facebook and YouTube.
