Program Description
Program examines the financial resources, businesses and other economic goods necessary to Boston's Chinese community in the immediate future. Host Barbara Barrow speaks with guests William Leong, Executive Director of the Chinese Economic Development Council, and Joseph Chow, Director of Program Development for the Chinese Economic Development Council, about getting the Chinese community into mainstream American business, why the Chinese have "typically" opened restaurants and laundries, what the CEDC does to ensure adequate help in developing new business ventures, how to create a better and larger community in Boston, and why people come to the CEDC for training. Additional segments include the "Say Brother News" with reporters June Cross, Eric Sampedro, Justina Chu, and WNAC TV arts critic Tanya Hart, the "Third World Connection" (in which the relationship between Anglo-Saxons and Africans during the Middle Ages is discussed), and the "Community Calendar."
