Butterflies have long held a special place in the hearts of the Chinese people. The tragic story of the Butterfly Lovers, Liang Shangbo and Zhu Yingtai, is one of the most celebrated romance stories in China. This legend is sometimes regarded as the Chinese equivalent of Romeo and Juliet.
At its second annual outreach event, A Passage to China, to be held at the Mall of America on April 4 and 5, the Chinese Heritage Foundation, in collaboration with ChinaInsight, is launching a new school project, the Butterfly Project, designed to engage students of all grades.
