  • Excerpt from How Dare We! Write

    Date: 2017.03.23 | Category: Writers Who Dare | Response: 0

    “The tinikling offers a visual explanation of how bilingual writing
    works. Like the agile dancing feet of a tinikling dancer, a bilingual
    writer’s mind is connected to her feet at all times, transferring and
    translating the beat of clapping bamboos from a hearing experience to
    a whole body experience. Living in a predominantly English-speaking
    culture means you cannot stop to think or even attempt to explain
    your actions and your meanings, or you will lose track of the dominant
    beat and find yourself caught in the thorns of misunderstanding. I can’t
    help but relate this to the spate of recent attacks on black bodies we
    have witnessed. There is never time to explain your black skin or your
    brown skin to someone intent on eradicating your black or brown
    body because he or she feels threatened by the mere sight of you. You
    have to keep dancing between the clapping bamboos of race
    perception. Those who tried, hands up or not, have ended in tragedy.
    Is this a far-fetched metaphor? If it is to you, you’ve never had to
    dance/write between bamboos.”–Marlina Gonzalez, How Dare We! Write
