Claudia Rankin Speaking in Poetry
Poetry as art, resistance, and truth-telling boldly confront and address human injustices. In this session, using contemplative (mindful) attentiveness, participants will communally read and reflect on selected stories on the consequence of race and skin color in Claudia Rankine’s Citizen: An American Lyric. Through a facilitated dialogue, the significance of these writings, given the current political and cultural landscape, will be explored.
