Claudia Rankine: Just Us

Portrait Claudia Rankine
Claudia Rankine [© Andrew Zuckerman for The Slowdown]

What does it mean to be white? With this question, Claudia Rankine, award-winning author of the poem »Citizen«, continues her examination of race and racism in the United States. For her latest volume, a collage of essays, poems, and images, she details conversations with white people – friends as well as chance acquaintances – about their whiteness. »Rankine writes with disarming intimacy and searing honesty.« [Kirkus Reviews]
