The title for this panel takes as its inspiration the words of philosopher and activist Grace Lee Boggs (Barnard College '35). In her call for visionary organizing, she remarked, "We have to reimagine." This interdisciplinary panel will address the historical roots and current manifestations of anti-Asian racism and violence in our collective efforts to reimagine.
