With Tibetan delegates restricted from the women’s conference in Beijing—and some interpreters there forbidden to translate talk of the Chinese-occupied region—Tibet stays in the news mostly for lack of progress. Tonight, exiled Tibetan leader and Nobel laureate the Dalai Lama lectures on “Visions for a Post-Deng China,” and even those skeptical about U.S.-Sino relations or unclear on the human rights angle can appreciate a cause embraced by the Beastie Boys and the ex-Mr. Cindy Crawford. At 7 p.m. at Constitution Hall, 18th & D Sts. NW. $10 (benefits the International Campaign for Tibet). (202) 310-1796. (Nathalie op de Beeck)
