I enjoyed watching the author Staceyann Chin read the “Tsunami Rising” because she had a way of reading Tsunami Rising that not any tone could pull off. Her reading was inspirational, motivating, and impactful to the black women. Chin carried a serious tone but very inspiring tone to act out and read this poem. She read it in a tone that wasn’t afraid to speak the truth, let people know of the truth and support the people that was oppressed by racist culture. She was a great representation for the black women and the people of color that had to live through slavery and such. I also enjoyed how she exposed different ways the black people were treated. I can’t think of any other way that someone should read this poem because Chin did it in a way that the people will understand and even fight for what’s right.
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.
