Featured Session: GO BACK TO WHERE YOU CAME FROM!

Mar 14, 2022

11:00am – 12:00pm CT

GO BACK TO WHERE YOU CAME FROM: AND OTHER HELPFUL RECOMMENDATIONS ON HOW TO BECOME AMERICAN is a guide, elegy, and self-help book for those of us who love a country that doesn't love us back and allegedly come from "shithole countries." How do you survive and thrive when you're seen as both "us" and "them," a neighbor and a suspect, a perpetual threat whose citizenship is always conditional? How do you fight back? How do you make sure there's enough spices in the chicken and enough halal meat? How do you defeat Thanos, white supremacy, with the ethnic Avengers, and do with a smile on your face? This book and panel will teach you how.
