Writing Race & Belonging: A Live Monument

On June 15th, 2013, as part of Writing on it AllKundiman enacted a live monument for Writing Race & Belonging on Governor's Island.  This undertaking was framed by the fact that the New World's first lawful expression of religious tolerance ("Toleration") took place in 1624 on Governors Island.  That jurisprudence was the basis for religious and ethnic diversity and was applied to the region that is now referred to as the New York Tri-State.  Together we wrote a real-time virtual 19 page poem, painted on the walls of a house and upheld the stories of migration and belonging of our families.
