Risk-taking Researcher- Brantley Wren
Red Scarf Girl- Ji-Li Jiang
Chapters 10 - 12
In these chapters, the book mentions that Ji-Li’s father and many other of the actors get detained from their jobs. During the Cultural Revolution, people that were thought to be against Chairman Mao were greatly persecuted and investigated. If the person being investigated was found “guilty” they were put in work camps as punishment. The chapters also talk about how Ji-Li goes to a telephone kiosk farther away so that the neighbors can’t hear her. The reason behind this is that while the Cultural Revolution took place, neighbors could report you to the government and say you did something wrong, even if it’s a lie. it happened quite often where neighbors would report you to get back at you for doing something they didn't like.
