Date: Fri, 5 Oct 2018 16:03:55 -0700 (PDT)

The City of Burlingame cordially invites you to an evening of celebration of our city’s namesake, Anson Burlingame. Join us for a special program of speakers and for the unveiling of a bust of Anson, made to honor the 150th anniversary of the Burlingame Treaty. The Burlingame Treaty was the first to recognize the equal rights of Chinese citizens and to grant China most favored nation status. Anson Burlingame is one of America’s finest human rights leaders and defenders of social justice, a man well ahead of his own time and very relevant to ours.
The bust was sculpted by renowned artist Zhou Limin in China especially for the City of Burlingame.
Come hear the stories about Anson, his fierce anti-slavery efforts in Congress, his crucial work to get President Lincoln elected, and his accomplishments as Ambassador/Envoy to China… and from China!
