I really like listening to Chin’s poem “Tsunami Rising”. She has a very powerful message about black women racism throughout the centuries. She deepens her message with the use of feeling and emotion contained in the poem. I really like how authentic she was sharing her message without filters that makes anyone get engaged with her tone of voice. I like one part when she says that she told her daughter that “ your whole body belongs to no one but you”. I believe that with this poem she was trying to stand up for every single black woman that feel less deserve and that have been through bad moments just for being dark skin.

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.
