What if what I want from you is new, newly made
a new sentence in response to all my questions
In Just Us, her follow-up to the award-winning collection Citizen, Claudia Rankine creates another powerfully provocative and genre-defying work of poetry, essays and images inviting readers to take part in a much-needed conversation about race in America. She will be joined in conversation by Robin DiAngelo, the author of White Fragility.
“Claudia Rankine is one of our essential thinkers about race, difference, politics, and the United States of America,” wrote Viet Thanh Nguyen. “Written with humility and humor, criticism and compassion, Just Us asks difficult questions and begins necessary conversations.”
