This reading by Wang Ping is free and open to the public.

“At a time when immigration is at the forefront of national news, we will hear the singular voice of Wang Ping, a poet, writer, photographer, multimedia artist, and activist reading from her new book “My Name Is Immigrant.” Drawing from her own experiences and those of the immigrants she has met along the way, her poignant renderings are both moving and inspiring.”

In the Belly of ICE

“The multilingual poet Indran Amirthanayagam’s, The Migrant States (New York: Hanging Loose Press, 2020) draws inspiration from Walt Whitman’s emblematic embrace of the multitudes, his own experience as a diplomat, and the stories migrants themselves tell. Amirthanayagam’s narrative poems in a way also utilize the cinema verité approach.”

NEW YORK—Those who wish to get an accurate picture of what goes on in ICE, or the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency of the United States, would do well to watch Immigration Nation, a powerful and moving six-hour series on Netflix. Filmmakers Christina Clusiau and Shaul Schwarz received of...
