Claudia Rankine: Citizen, An American Lyric

Hosted by

In discussing Claudia Rankine's Citizen: An American Lyric (Graywolf Press), we discuss the way racism catches us all. These poems - prose poems, essays, artworks, videos - attempt to come up with a form to meet the experience of the intimate racism that besets us daily on both personal and political levels.
