Citizens: A Conversation on Race, Ethnicity, Identity, and Democracy

August 3, 2020 @ EST 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Unless otherwise noted, SummerWrite camps are offered as 5-session experiences, Monday – Friday.

Member Price: $125
Deadline to Register: August 2, 5 PM
Instructor: Almeta Whitis
Age Group: 14+

Using Claudia Rankine’s book Citizen: An American Lyric as a jumping off point, we will engage in discussion and writing around racial identity and social justice issues. We will examine the question of what makes a person the “other.” Through open, ongoing dialogue and an arts process, students will create original stories of everyday encounters with nuances of racism and identity to facilitate a healing dialogue. An anthology of student work will be collected at the end of the week to share with friends and family. Students will receive a copy of Citizen on the first day.
