The impact on Asian American communities in the decade since 9/11 has taken many visible and invisible forms -- including detention and deportation, displaced Chinatown workers and residents..., and racial and religious profiling and surveillance -- yet Asian Americans are frequently left out of public discussions surrounding the aftermath of 9/11. Please join us for a discussion featuring KUNDIMAN and THE ASIAN AMERICAN LITERARY REVIEW, two Asian American arts and literature organizations that have responded to this living history by producing projects that bring attention to Asian American experiences in the decade since 9/11.
AALR Editor-in-Chief LAWRENCE-MINH BÙI DAVIS will be on hand with ELIZABETH OUYANG and SONNY SINGH, contributors to the AALR SPECIAL ISSUE: COMMEMORATING THE TENTH ANNIVERSARY OF SEPT. 11, featuring testimonies, essays, and dialogues by Asian American scholars, educators, activists, artists, and poets on the before and after of the decade since 9/11.
Poets MARLON ESGUERRA, APRIL NAOKO HECK, EUGENIA LEIGH, ZOHRA SAED, AND PURVI SHAH will perform and discuss work from TOGETHER WE ARE NEW YORK: ASIAN AMERICANS REMEMBER & RE-VISION 9/11, a unique community history and public remembrance arts project produced by KUNDIMAN, the country’s leading organization for Asian American poetry and poets. The show combines poems based on interviews with Asian American community members about 9/11 and the decade since with audio clips from the interviews.
