Teng Biao is a prominent lawyer, human-rights activist, and democracy leader from China. He comes from a small, poor village and went to the country’s leading university: Peking University. He earned a Ph.D. in legal philosophy. His life took a turn, though: he entered dissidence, wanting to defend people’s rights and speak for the voiceless. He was therefore imprisoned and tortured several times. Today, he is in the United States, where he has lectured and taught at many top universities: including Harvard, Yale, and Chicago. With Jay, he talks about the Olympic Games, the genocide of the Uyghurs, and other very important issues.
