According to the video description, “[Chin] suffered corrective rape in Jamaica and racism here in America. But her optimism knows no bounds. Through her work, the loud, proud soul is gunning for a utopia, where everyone has access to the resources that they need to be safe and happy.”
Chin's poetry can be found in her chapbooks, Wildcat Woman and Stories Surrounding My Coming, as well as numerous anthologies, including Skyscrapers, Taxis and Tampons, and Cultural Studies: Critical Methodologies. In 2009, Chin published her autobiographical novel, The Other Side of Paradise: A Memoir.
