Join us for an evening devoted to discussion of Claudia Rankine’s award-winning poetry collection Citizen: An American Lyric, a powerful and direct engagement with race and violence in present-day American culture. FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
In April 2018, Austin Community College will present a series of events designed to promote the reading and discussion of the award-winning book, Citizen: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine.
Citizenship Across Communities aims to:
- nurture a love of reading among readers and non-readers
- use innovative literature as the catalyst for community-building conversations
- celebrate the richness of African American artists in Austin
- further the notion that reading, writing and artistic responses to current issues are all essential aspects of citizenship.
