Student work: THE THINGS WE CARRY: A ZINE OF ASIAN/AMERICAN REFLECTIONS by students in HILD 7B: Race and Ethnicity in the US

This zine is created by students in HILD 7B, an introduction to Asian American history course at UC San Diego in Winter 2021. As the devastating global pandemic rages on, compounded by surging anti-Asian violence and other forms of racist structural violence, students processed their grief and the multiple challenges they faced through art, poetry, short stories, and other creative works. These are expressions of grief, anger, and frustration, but also love letters to family and to elders, manifestos of solidarity, calls for experiments of collective care, and a roadmap to a different future. Thank you all for sharing your vulnerability and radical creativity, your visions and dreams of a better world.
