Celebrate Asian/Pacific Islander Heritage Month Featuring a "Conversation with renowned educator Merle Woo!"
Don’t miss this evening featuring veteran writer-activist Merle Woo. This pioneering Asian American feminist, radical educator, queer liberationist, and heralded poet will address such topics as her experiences battling for academic freedom; the current state of Ethnic and Women Studies; global events and war; and how activists can maintain optimism in these times. Woo will also be available to sign copies of her newly-reissued collection of poems, Yellow Woman Speaks.
The meeting will also include a report on the case of political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal and why young feminists are stepping up to defend him in 2004.
A tasty dinner, with vegan option, will be served at 6:15pm for a $6.50 donation. The meeting will be held at New Valencia Hall, 1908 Mission Street in San Francisco (at 15th St., 1 block from 16th/Mission BART & on #14 & #49 Muni bus lines). Everyone is welcome.
