In March 1941, the 359th Brigade of the Eighth Route Army marched toward Nanniwan in the south of Yan'an to build a military settlement. In December 1942, Mao Zedong made a report on "economic issues and financial issues" at the conference for senior cadres in the Ningxia Border Region to clarify that the general policy of economic and financial work is to "develop the economy and guarantee supply". In 1943, Mao Zedong wrote an inscription for the documentary film Production, Fighting Together (later retitled Nanniwan), inscribing "do it yourself" for the original film and "clothed" for the renamed film.

Feb 2—20, 1966: Jiang Qing holds an Army Literary Work Forum
From Feb 2 to Feb 20, 1966, with the support of Lin Biao, Jiang Qing held the Army Literary Work Forum in Shanghai and wrote the meeting summary. In March, Mao Zedong reviewed the summary three times. On April 10, the CPC Central Committee endorsed the summary. The summary denied the achievements that the arts community had made during 17 years since the founding of new China under the leadership of the CPC. The summary said the arts community was "dictated by a black line of anti-Party and anti-society forces opposed to Mao Zedong thought". "We must resolutely carry out a socialist revolution on the cultural front, and completely get rid of this black line," the summary stated. The summary set the stage for the "cultural revolution", and it was a beginning of collusion between Jiang Qing and Lin Biao.
