The Pain of Invisibility

You cannot be anti-racist without acknowledging the Asian American experience.


Poets Lin-Manuel Miranda, Amanda Gorman, and now BC Law student Rosa Kim ’22 have used the power of the spoken word to animate American history on the stage, to define the American moment at the 2021 inauguration, and, in Kim’s case, to reveal, in a BC Law Impact post, the trauma of Asian-American citizenship.

Why are the revered elders of her community being injured and killed on the streets—in broad daylight? Why are so few of these incidents being reported in the press? What exactly is the so-called Model Minority Myth?

Read Kim’s poem as you listen to her speak her truth at BC Law Impact.
