Episode 44: Red Scarf Girl Part II-Party vs. Family

As Ji-Li Jiang describes in "Red Scarf Girl," the Cultural Revolution became more sinister over time and the psychological pressure on Ji-Li to conform became greater.

This is the second and final part in a series on Ji-Li Jiang's experience during the Cultural Revolution.
