AHM@NYU MESMERISE: CLOSING CELEBRATION
Thursday, April 28 · 7:00pm - 10:00pm
Join us for Asian Heritage Month Closing Celebration - MESMERISE! For this year’s closing celebration,we will hold a red carpet event honoring all the hard work that was put into producing the cultural events for this year’s Asian Heritage Month at NYU. The night will feature spoken word artist Suheir Hammad, and we will be serving mocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
Suheir Hammad, a Palestinian-American poet, author and political activist who was born in October 1973 in Amman, Jordan to Palestinian refugee parents and immigrated with her family to Brooklyn, New York City when she was five years old. Her parents later moved to Staten Island. As an adolescent, Hammad was heavily influenced by Brooklyn’s vibrant Hip-Hop scene and absorbed the stories shared by her parents and grandparents about life Lydda before the 1948 Palestinian exodus. From these disparate influences, Hammad wove into her work a common narrative of dispossession, not as an immigrant, a Palestinian and a Muslim, but as a woman struggling against society’s sexism and as a poet. She was signed to HBO’s Def Poetry Jam by Russell Simmons after he discovered her piece, “First Writing Since”. She is now working on her third publication which will be a book of prose.
