Claudia Rankine Reads from Citizen

Dec 8, 2015

Poet Claudia Rankine reads from Citizen, her recent meditation on race in America.

“Claudia Rankine’s Citizen comes at you like doom,” wrote Hilton Als. “It’s the best note in the wrong song that is America. Its various realities—‘mistaken’ identity, social racism, the whole fabric of urban and suburban life—are almost too much to bear, but you bear them, because it’s the truth.”
