The former country of Tibet, now part of China, has a rich history of independence dating back more than 2,000 years. Since the Chinese invasion in 1950, many things have changed. China has been rushing to modernity, destroying much of the Tibetan culture and ancient civilization. Dr. Doug Munch will talk about the history of Tibet, how Buddhism became the majority religion and cultural influence, and changes imposed under Chinese rule. He will also share his personal experiences and discuss his photos which are on display during the month of December. Free. Advance sign-up is requested. Click here to sign up.
