Youth Program Room

When we enter a room, we bring with us the self that people see—and the self that people project onto us. We'll explore the tension between these selves.

Using an excerpt from Claudia Rankine’s celebrated prose poem Citizen, we’ll focus on the ways Rankine illustrates and questions how one can be in a society that denies the basic humanity of black people. Poet Nicole Bond will facilitate this discussion, with library staff.  

Registration limited to 20 participants. Sign up and get a copy of the excerpt at the Readers Services Desk.
