Asian Americans Remember and Re-Vision 9/11
“The sense of urgency to write often comes from a place of necessity – to discover truth, to challenge the simplification of stories.” — Hossannah Asuncion
The ten-year anniversary of 9/11 will bring an outpouring of emotions and remembrances. Together We Are New York helps to ensure Asian American community voices are presented and shared as a vital part of the fabric of city memory and the nation’s journey forward. Nine Kundiman poets have interviewed 10 Asian Americans on their experiences that day and in the decade since. The material, crafted into poems accompanied by audio and visual clips for a series of public performances and dialogues, uniquely combines historical documentation with artistic production and public engagement.
