ArtsEmerson and The American Repertory Theater invite you to a conversation with acclaimed author, poet, and MacArthur Fellow Claudia Rankine where she discusses the journey from her 2014 New York Times best-selling book of poetry Citizen: An American Lyric to her world premiere play The White Card.

This event was an opportunity to continue the conversation that over one thousand people in Greater Boston have participated in as a part of Citizen Read.

The conversation was informed by questions gathered from Citizen Read participants. Seeking ways to have meaningful and productive conversations around race, participants posed questions to themselves, to their communities, and to Ms. Rankine.
