September 11th, 2001. A few days prior, performance artist Nabeela Vega had just moved from the United States from their home in Bangladesh with their family, at the age of eleven. In its aftermath, the American Dream that ushers in so many rapidly unfurls, and navigating this new landscape becomes a new kind of contentious for Brown bodies. It is violent, ugly and mimics a time that had never really gone by, a time that has always been but wears a new mask, wears a different form.
