Buena Vista- Dawn Wing

“Buena Vista” is a visual poem based on the little-known, historically obscured experiences of Chinese migrant farm workers who built the first wineries and vineyards of Sonoma County, California. This poem is an homage to my Chinese ancestors who endured discrimination as immigrants in the United State yet persisted with resourcefulness and resilience in order to survive. This piece is also dedicated to undocumented immigrants from all parts of the world doing hard labor across industries who still face similar injustices today.
