Cultural Series – Hồ Chí Minh Thought

May 19 @ 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM


134 years ago on 19 May 1890 Hồ Chí Minh was born (and he died on 2 September 1969). Given that May 2024 is the 70th anniversary of the Diên Biên Phu victory and the fact this year 19 May falls on a Sunday which is a great day for a lecture this month we are looking at his legacy, the man himself and his ideology.

To quote Britannica – ‘As the leader of the Vietnamese nationalist movement for nearly three decades, Hồ was one of the prime movers of the post-World War II anti-colonial movement in Asia and one of the most influential communist leaders of the 20th century.’

President Hồ Chí Minh took the path to socialism, which the Communist Party of Vietnam and the nation have followed ever since. His ideology is a political philosophy based on Marxism-Leninism. Uncle Hồ was also influenced by traditional VN values and culture, Eastern cultural thought, Western ideologies, and his own personal morality.

Dr Trần Doãn Lâm will present about uncle Hồ – a huge topic but Lâm is skilled at summarising expansive topics in an easy to understand, quick way.

The lecture will focus on 3 main areas about Hồ Chí Minh:

  • A short biog and profile
  • His revolutionary career
  • Hồ Chí Minh Thought

And… as its uncle Hồ’s 134th birthday we will have a birthday cake in his honour.
