"The furthest distance in the world is not between life and death, but, when I stand in front of you, yet, you don't know that I love you", so said the poet. What I would like to say is that "The furthest distance in the world is not between life and death, but, when I stand in front of you, and you think, "who are you?", "all Chinese look the same"---- This is how Oberlin middle school teacher Ms. Shuo Jin, of Confucius Institute at Cleveland State University, feels.A considerable amount of Americans think that all of the Chinese people are the same!
In order to expand American students' horizons and diminish their over-generalized impressions of Chinese people, Xuhong Zhang (Cleveland State University Confucius Institute's associate director), along with teachers Shuo Jin and Jinting Xing, held a two-day Chinese Traditional clothing show at Langston Middle School on October 9 and 10, 2017.
A total of eighty-five students from Grades 6 through 8, have participated in this event and experienced the incredible beauty of traditional Chinese clothing.
