Cathy Park Hong | Minor Feelings: An Asian American Reckoning
Cathy Park Hong’s widely praised book of essays, "Minor Feelings," is an essential text for reframing our understanding of race in America. By reflecting on her experiences as an Asian American woman, she has written a deeply informative and culture-shifting treatise to be cited for years to come. In a lively talk that brings her words to life, Hong expands on the ideas in "Minor Feelings" and incorporates the historical and cultural context of what it means to be a racialized other. By sharing personal anecdotes of her Asian American personhood, Hong brings to light the racist ideologies we all internalize and posits that the way forward requires an acknowledgement of harmful ideas and stereotypes that hold us all back from equality.
