A Road Scholar Program by Ada Cheng
This presentation encompasses a storytelling performance and a facilitated dialogue. I will be telling personal stories that reflect both the historical status of Asian Americans as well as the impact of current major crises facing us, particularly the rising anti-Asian violence under the pandemic. The stories will address the following concepts.
- Having citizenship is different from having a sense of home in the United States.
- Othering immigrants of color through institutionalized practices, processes, and mechanisms.
- How we reproduce inequalities through individual practices in addition to structural inequities.
- The importance of intersectionality, such as the connection among gender, race, class, sexuality, immigration, and citizenship.
- Historical and rising anti-Asian racism under the Pandemic as well as the necessity for cross-racial solidarity and alliance-building.
This event is Free and Open to the public. For more information, please contact Angel Flores at email@example.com.
