El Dia – Pilipina Poems

23 Feb

El Dia of the Sisters of Resistance today published a collection of her poetry, entitled PilipinaPoems. Written during or after extended stays in her family home in Manila, Philippines, the poems are socio-economic and political commentaries on the neo-colonial situation of the Philippines and Filipino/as worldwide.  The collection is both record and reflection of her evolution as a Filipina-Amerikan writer and cultural activist, and a map of her path to decolonization. She presents it in solidarity with the Global South and diasporic peoples across the globe fighting for social, economic, and spiritual liberation.

      Hi Jeannie,

      I’m very glad you enjoyed the reading. Your comment really means a lot to me. That poem is new and you have helped me to get it off the ground. Thank you, and wishing you the best.
