ANGRY ASIAN GIRLS is excited to announce that we will be hosting an interactive poetry workshop at NYCAASC 2019.

Unfinished Conversation: Poetry and Discourse
In the Asian Pacific American community, rage is often suppressed and political discussions, silenced. When it comes to combating inter-passivity, it is important to recognize the role our discourses embrace and how they operationalize in social spaces. Historically, immigrants on Angel island have used poetry as a survival strategy and Chinese women have used poetry as a mechanism by which they rewrite a history that has “unremembered” them. This workshop seeks to provide a safe space in which students can translate rage by creating and using slam poetry to change the scope in which Asian Pacific Americans navigate the world, bridging the gap between theory and praxis.

Event is open to the public. See you there!
