About the event
When Asian-American comedian Ali Wong announced her divorce from husband Justin Hakuta last spring, mainstream media posted the news with the wrong pic: Wong’s co-star Randall Park instead of her actual husband. Nope. #wrongAsian — one of many nuh-uhs. Actor Randall Park is also not comedian Ronny Chieng. #wrongAsian. Singaporean actress Tan Kheng Hua is not Malaysian actress Michelle Yeoh. #wrongAsian. Vietnamese-Australian lawyer Tu Le is not Sally Sitou from the Australian Labor Party. #wrongAsian. NYC community activist Grace Lee is not hate-crime victim Michelle Go. #wrongAsian.
#WRONGASIAN: OTHER POETS I HAVE BEEN Join us for a night of poetry and identity messing. Featuring four Asian-American women poets: Woogee Bae who is not Arlene Kim who is not EJ Koh who is not Shin Yu Pai.
Flutist Leanna Keith will perform and improvise.
