Citizen Book Discussion — Led by Damien Ware

In her award-winning book Citizen: An American Lyric, poet Claudia Rankine lays bare moments of racism that often surface in everyday encounters. It combines poetry with commentary, visual art, quotations from artists and critics, slogans and scripts for films, to become a provocative meditation on race. It is “an anatomy of American racism in the new millennium” (Bookforum). Leading these discussions of Citizen is local poet Damien Ware.
