Citizens: A Conversation on Race, Identity, & Democracy (August 12 – August 16)

August 12 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$136.00

(AFTERNOONS: for ages 14+) Using Claudia Rankine’s book Citizen: An American Lyric, which recounts acts of racism in lyrical prose poems, 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.
