The US debut of internationally acclaimed poet and performance artist Shailja Patel Migritude is a tour de force hybrid text that confounds categories and conventions Part poetic memoir part political history Migritude weaves together family history reportage and monologues to create. We overdress we migrants We care too much how we look to you We get it wrong We ought to look like we don't give a fuck We show up ridiculously groomed bearing elaborate gifts We are too formally grateful We cringe in silent shame for you when you don't offer food or drink Eat before us without sharing Serve yourselves first Insult us without knowing Two white Americans said to me when I shared my doughnut with them We've never seen anyone cut a doughnut into three pieces We calibrate hunger precisely Define enough differently from you Enough is what's available shared between everyone present We are incapable of saying as you can so easily Sorry there's not enough for you And How much we can do without is our strength But you find it comic Pitiable Miserly You just can't imagine how a family of eight lives in a one room apartment You don't want to think how someone survives on 7 an hour It makes you uncomfortable when we eat stems and peels Dry our clothes in the sun Repair instead of replace You mistake austerity living without waste for deprivation Intense eh Shailja Patel's Migritude is a collection of vignettes prose and letters that detail not just her movement across countries cultures and continents but is also a hurricane full of rage at the injustice committed to the Others by the hedgemony in post colonial speakIn the first poem of the collection How Ambi Became Paisley Patel talks about how culture was mined and stolen from Indians specifically The poem details a different kind of migration the enforced kind In bare and beautiful words she asks In 1846 Britain annexed the vale of Kashmir fabled paradise of beauty and sold it to Maharaj Gulab Singh of Jammu for one million pounds How do you price a country How do you value its mountains and lakes the scent of its trees the colors of its sunset What's the markup on the shapes of fruit in the dreams of its people The poem talks about how Kashmiri clothes became cashmere Ambi became paisley Mosuleen became muslin and chai became a beverage invented in California She details how British officials cut off the fingers of Indian weavers who made Mosuleen because British fabric couldn't compete in the market with Indian mosuleenBut perhaps the most astringent of all the uestions How many ways can you splice a history Price a country Dice a people Slice a heart Entice what's been erased back into story My gritude Migritude's story begins with a suitcase of saris that Patel's mother gave to her as a trousseau Patel uses these saris to ground herself into her culture and uses these same saris in theater performances of Migritude Originally a spoken word performance the collection found another medium from which to inspire in the form of this bookWe have tried to find books that deal with immigrant experiences all throughout this month but perhaps we haven't yet spoken about some experiences that are no less real for their unspoken ness Being an immigrant myself the experiences Shailja Patel talks about in Migritude are familiar to mePeople who immigrate to different countries are expected to assimilate completely into the new culture as if their culture of origin is somehow inferior to the one in the country they are migrating to Instead of integration assimilation is taught These immigrants who have moved for all sorts of reasons are recreated as objects of pity and inferiority and often judged as somehow Other even though they occupy the same spacez and breathe same air and belong to the same speciesThis reduction of a person of a people is also something Patel addresses beautifully Listen my father speaks Urdu language of dancing peacocks rosewater fountains even its curses are beautiful He speaks Hindi suave and melodic earthy Punjabi salty rich as saag paneer coastal Swahili laced with Arabic He speaks Gujarati solid ancestral pride Five different languages five different worlds Yet English shrinks him down before white men who think their flat cold spiky words make the only reality The book discusses Idi Amin's expulsion of Indians from Uganda and isn't afraid of naming the names of those responsible found in documents declassified in 2001 In a poignant piece she talks about the indignities her parents face when they are taken aside in the airport on a trip to the US and held for no reason for 4 hoursI haven't seen my brother in than three years but his application to visit Canada was rejected on the grounds that he is hale and hearty and may leave his family in Fiji where he has a job and a house to stay in Canada where he has apart from family members nothingMigritudePatel's poems will make you cry as Eater of Death did me The poem is about Bibi Sardar an Afghani woman whose husband and seven children were killed in a US airstrike is sharp and thorny Or maybe the poem that will break you is the one about how British soldiers raped women and  children without worry for conseuences of their actions the authorities turn a blind eye to their doingsHer poetry will make you angry and leave you unsettled and wondering about the spaces you occupy both physically and mentally They will leave you aware of yourself in a way you may not have been beforeRead Migritude It just may be the best book you read ever SS Français: Récits, lettres et témoignages inédits de la SS Charlemagne of internationally

An achingly beautiful portrait of women's lives and migrant journeys undertaken under the boot print of Empire Patel who was born in Kenya and educated in England and the US honed her poetic skills in performances of this work that have received standing ovations throughout Europe Afr. I lifted this book from an AirBNB What it was doing in Santa Barbara I had no idea But I had been looking for it forever and there it was waiting for me on Christmas Day when I had nothing else going on in my lifeI wasn't uite sure what I was getting into I knew this was something good I knew it riffed off Negritude but I had no idea about the one woman play about the saris or about Shailja Patel herself These were all good discoveries This isn't a book in the romance sense but a book in the coherent argument sense She brings in prose poetry uotes illustrations and descriptions in a wildly novel way Even for someone like me with little patience for poetry it works It works really wellThe central idea – that there is a coherent migrant identity throughout the world in the 21st century – is both uniue and upon revealing it kinda no duh It's explicated so brilliantly that the reader is half convinced they thought of the idea themselves and that Patel just brought the historical backing It's all done so beautifully and so cleverly that I couldn't help but be carried away in it
