Is this the correct way to use a semi colon?

To achieve the latter Deng it was important to redefine the role of Mao Zedong thought within the CCP; Deng declared that the class struggle has been overcome and that a Socialist society has been established.
Assuming that you've had a random moment with the part before the semicolon (which is currently gibberish - I think "thought" has got misplaced), yes it's fine - you are using it to separate two closely related sentences.

Mao Zedong thought is an actual theory- it is meant to be written like that.
