I really like Chin’s poem. I like anything that carries the passion of the author because it brings out the purest thoughts of a person. In Tsunami Rising, Chin’s anger is present throughout the whole thing, but through that we also see her worry for her daughter, making sure to inform her of all parts of her body properly at a young age and let her know it is no one’s property but her owns, and her sadness that even though black women stand up for everyone else, they are looked down on and hurt by every community they aid.
Professor: Jessica Penner
Office Hours: 1 to 2 PM on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I’ll be available through Zoom and will send an invitation through email each week. Try to join my meeting at the start of the hour, not at the end—since I may be talking to other students or have another appointment after the hour is up. If those times don’t work with your schedule, we can schedule a different time. This means you’ll have to schedule an appointment in advance via email.
