Music Monday (Special Edition): Kelly Tsai

Happy Monday Generasian-ers! In anticipation for our Fall 2015 Launch Party tomorrow, today’s Music Monday is dedicated to our speaker Kelly Tsai.

Kelly Tsai is an award-winning writer, performer, director, and filmmaker based in Brooklyn, New York. Her work as a performance poet has been featured at over 700 venues worldwide including the White House, Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, Apollo Theater in Harlem, BAM, MTV Iggy, HBO’s “East of Main Street: Asians Aloud” and three seasons of HBO’s “Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry.” She has performed at events that have featured leaders and entertainers as diverse as Bill Clinton, Gloria Steinem, Donna Brazile, Tyra Banks, Harry Belafonte, and Drake

Throughout her career, Kelly has been active and committed to using the arts as leverage for social change for issues like cultural identity, feminism, domestic violence prevention, immigration reform, law enforcement reform, sexual assault prevention, and voter enfranchisement. We are both honored and excited to have her as our guest speaker for this semester’s launch party.

Wishing you a wonderful week~
