Poem for Marissa (Mimi Thi Nguyen)

Mimi Thi Nguyen is a vietnamese-american punk, zine author and professor. She teaches Gender & Women’s Studies and Asian American Studies at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. She is the creator of the Race Riot zine series (& subsequent Race Riot tour) that was a direct response to racism/white supremacy and apolitical-ness in the punk scene. Mimi reads ‘Flare” dedicated to Marissa. Please send us your submission.
