Join The Explorers Club and Steven Schwankert FI’05 as we honor the 110th anniversary of the sinking of the Titantic.

Learn as Schwankert, co-creator of “The Six” book and documentary project, details the little known history of the eight Chinese passengers who sailed aboard Titanic on her ill-fated maiden voyage. Despite being the most obviously foreign of Titanic’s passengers, these six passengers managed to survive — a surprising number for a group of men traveling in third class. One of the six was pulled from the water — perhaps the last person rescued from Titanic, and the inspiration for one of modern cinema’s most iconic moments. What does their story reveal about the sinking as a whole, and specifically about the experience of key Titanic figures, including owner J. Bruce Ismay?

Streaming live here on explorers.org, our YouTube Channel, and our Facebook LiveMonday, April 11th at 7:00 pm ET.
