On July 27th, 1953, a very homogeneous Korea with the same exact culture, people, history, and language was divided into two countries following the Korean War. The countries took different paths, following different ideologies. Their stories are dramatic in the extreme and offer important and poignant lessons for Americans...and specifically Republicans as we work to educate people about the realities of Capitalism vs Socialism.
Distinguished guest, Jinny Choi will present a comparison of the Koreas between 1953 and now. She is an amazing example of personal strength and determination and is supremely qualified to speak on this subject. Born in Korea, she came to the US as an international high school student.
