Our understandings of race start at the dinner table, in the communities closest to us. At the same time, for Asian diaspora families that hold varied languages, ages, immigration stories, and experiences, these are often the spaces where it is hardest to organize.
Through the lens of creative writing, Kundiman wants to create space to develop new languages to connect with family members and loved ones about how we position, identify, and liberate our communities within American racial structures.
- Introduction and framing

This event is a continuation of “Stay Woke,” a writing workshop, reading, and organizing program that Kundiman developed in response to and solidarity with Black Lives Matter and the Ferguson, MO uprisings of 2014.
