Announcing #NotSoMinorFeelings Six Word Memoir Project

What six words come to your mind as your read Cathy Park Hong's book, Minor Feelings?

Cathy Park Hong, author of the best-selling book Minor Feelings: An Asian American Reckoning, will be visiting UCI on April 15. Numerous events since the publication of Minor Feelings in early 2000 have asked the US to reckon with its histories and pervasive cultures of systemic racism. What exactly needs to be reckoned with, and who should be involved? What does it mean to be Asian American in this unprecedented moment? Do literature and the humanities more broadly play unique roles in interrogating the events we find ourselves in?
