About this Event
"A border, like race, is a cruel fiction
Maintained by constant policing, violence
Always threatening a new map. It takes
Time, lots of people’s time, to organize
The world this way. & violence. It takes more
Violence. Violence no one can confuse for
Anything but violence."
—from "Brazilian Is Not a Race" by Wendy Trevino, courtesy of The Poetry Project
