China Focus Chen Guangcheng

Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng's escape from his house arrest in a village in China's Shandong Province to the U.S. Embassy in Beijing received international attention in 2012. The activist writes about his experiences in his new memoir "The Barefoot Lawyer: A Blind Man's Fight for Justice and Freedom in China." VOA's Sarah Williams reports on Chen's recent appearance at The National Press Club in Washington, DC to discuss the new book.
