When: Sat., Nov. 7, 11 a.m.-12 p.m. 2020
Claudia Rankine will present a book talk on her new publication Just Us: An American Conversation. As everyday white supremacy becomes increasingly vocalized with no clear answers at hand, how best might we approach one another? Claudia Rankine, without telling us what to do, urges us to begin the discussions that might open pathways through this divisive and stuck moment in American history. Just Us is an invitation to discover what it takes to stay in the room together, even and especially in breaching the silence, guilt, and violence that follow direct addresses of whiteness.
