This is the first video that introduces my book and multimedia project entitled: Dream of the Water Children: Memory & Mourning in the Black Pacific. The book will be published in Fall 2015 by 2Leaf Press (New York). This work is a hybrid work that transgresses the boundaries of discipline, genre, and identity. It focuses on the long social history of the Pacific Rim through the eyes of Blackness and Asian-ness in the shadow of European colonization and American militarism. I do this by combining dreams of aboriginal and colonial women and children alongside my family history connected to the Occupation of Japan, Japan's conquest of China, and my relationship with my mother.
