In six years studying and working in China, African-American Morgan A. Jones, born in Brooklyn, sometimes encountered prejudice. But more often he met people eager to learn about the diversity of American society. From performing hip-hop with local musicians to hosting a Chinese-language jazz show on Shanghai radio, Jones strove to bring the range of US culture to China. Now, working in the US, he looks to further promote cultural exchanges between both countries.
