There is pain in the world and there is pain in our lives. This presentation is about getting to the heart of that pain to uncover the truth. A Korean American poet will reveal the unspeakable atrocities perpetrated on the 200,000 captive Korean women during WWII. A Chinese American memoirist will convey why he stopped being Chinese at the age of five and the reason he spent most of his life running from his family and culture.
Panelists: Tanya Hyonhye Ko, Raymond M. Wong
