Mixed Korean: Our Stories
Sponsored by Asian American and Pacific Islander Studies.
Please join Asian American and Pacific Islander Studies, Boston Korean Adoptees, and 325 KAMRA for a special reading of Mixed Korean: Our Stories on Saturday, November 2nd, 2 p.m., at Skyline Commons.
Authors will read from their incredible stories that capture the essence of what it is to be a mixed Korean. With common themes of exclusion, and recollections of not looking Korean enough, black enough, white enough, or "other" enough, this powerful collection will resonate with anyone who has ever stood on the outside of a group, longing for inclusion.
Special guest and award-winning filmmaker Deann Borshay Liem will also preview her upcoming film Relative Strangers. Her latest work follows adult children of U.S. servicemen and South Korean women, mixed race adoptees, as they seek out their birth parents in Korea and the U.S. sparking unexpected discoveries about family, race, culture, and themselves.
