Tuesday, June 29, 2021 - Today we begin a three-part series titled “Chinese Adoptees: Not Abandoned or Alone.” Annie Prafcke is a journalist who was born in Wuhu, Anhui Province in the People's Republic of China. She was adopted at six months old and raised in Fargo. In part one, “A Journey Home,” she explores her own identity as well as the complex identities of three other adopted Chinese women. ~~~ The Greetings Tour is a nationwide mural project that’s been on the road since 2015. Muralist Victor Ving and photographer Lisa Beggs are currently in North Dakota, preparing a postcard-style mural on the side of a Fargo building. So far, they’ve created over 50 murals in 24 states.
