In August 2002, the Leeway Foundation awarded Yellow Rage a Windows of Opportunity Grant which enabled them to travel to Hawai'i (Oahu) where they performed for the local poetry organization/collective Wordstew and attended the Globalization Research Center's Trafficking of Asian Women and Children Conference.

They were also featured on HBO's Russell Simmons Def Poetry Jam, which first aired in December 2001; the show can currently be seen in reruns on HBO. Their first CD, Black Hair, Brown Eyes, Yellow Rage, Vol. 1, is now available. Together, Michelle and Catzie are a dynamic duo of Philly-based Asian American female spoken word poets.

Through their voices, Catzie and Michelle hope to provide an awareness that is not often heard. Exploring topics from fetishes to cultural appropriation to ethnic pride, Yellow Rage challenges mainstream misconceptions of Asianness. Read more on Last.fm.
