ACJ Vincent Chin 40th year Commemoration Events June 16-19, 2022
I'll be performing at Vincent Chin 40th year Commemoration Arts Performance . I'll be performing poems from my new book, "You Cannot Resist Me When My Hair Is in Braids," Wayne State University Press, 2022. And I will also be performing my poem, "Finding home between the Vincent Chin case and COVID-19," and "Ypsilanti 1982" by Bryan Thao Worra, and excerpt from "Latin for New World Order" by Ravi Shankar," which will be published in my upcoming book, "Beyond Vincent Chin: Legacies in Action and Art, Wayne State Press, 2024. Thanks to Knight Arts Challenge Detroit, CultureSource, Ann Arbor Area Foundation, Michigan Humanties, and friends who have contributed essays and poems to this next book project.
DAY 3: Join Asian American artists and activists for an evening of performance embodying the collaboration, healing, and spirit of unity necessary to push our communities forward. Through song, poetry and movement, these artists affirm our vow to future generations.
