Poet Jade Cho's "In the Tongue of Ghosts"
Poet Jade Cho was recently featured on NBC News discussing her first poetry collection, "In the Tongue of Ghosts." Naturally, this catches my attention. In addition to her poetry, she's also an Oakland-based educator.
Jade Cho is descended from Toisanese immigrants, and uses her poetry to explore diaspora, race, gender, power, privilege, and of course, ghosts. She maintains a blog at http://jadecho.tumblr.com/ and is a member of the Ghostlines Collective.
