More information about Final Jeopardy:
Following the Chinese Civil War and Chiang Kai-shek fleeing the mainland to Taiwan, the People’s Republic of China was founded; Mao Zedong became Chairman, serving as head of state until 1959 and as Chairman of the Communist Party of China until his death on September 9, 1976, following multiple heart attacks.
The phrase “Chairman Mao is the red sun in our hearts” became oft-referenced in posters, badges, and musical compositions; in fact, odes to Mao set to a disco beat were released as a 1992 Chinese album titled The Red Sun.
