Photojournalist James Whitlow Delano will speak Tuesday night at 7 p.m. in Bailey Rotunda Room D at South Dakota State University. He has lived in Asia the last 17 years. According to Delano, as the balance of power in the Americas shifts from the U.S. towards China, Suriname has become a pawn of both countries. Delano believes that, through its release of thousands of secret diplomatic documents, WikiLeaks opened a curtain into the unseen U.S. diplomatic reactions to the expanding Chinese influence in the Americas.
