KSW Presents: Aria Aber and Monica Sok, award-winning poets and children of refugees exploring the impact of inherited wars—Aber, through interrogating historical and personal implications of Afghan American relations, and Sok, through myth- and memory-making of Cambodia and the Khmer Rouge regime.
As Asian Americans, many of us come together bearing the scars of violence. But our connections are not based in violence but in love and recognition, knowing the way our histories are informed by US imperialism and Cold War-era regimes. Together, we offer one another the lifelines we need to persist and thrive.
