“Where I Was”: Constance Singam Remembers and Forgets

Ahead of the publication of the revised and updated edition of her memoirs, legendary Singaporean civil society activist Constance Singam sits down with PJ Thum to talk about her long career in activism. They talk about the “AWARE Saga”, when it was taken over by a group of fundamentalist Christians, which she was a direct participant in as the then-outgoing President of AWARE. They discuss the race, nationalism, and identity; the intersections of Singam’s life with so many historical events; and how identity is fluid and ever-changing. They conclude with a discussion on activism in Singapore, what she’s learned from a long career, and her hopes for a better life for Singaporeans and all peoples.
