Join us for our next live Town Hall as Executive Director David C. Howse and Artistic Director David Dower pick up a long-arc conversation with renowned author Claudia Rankine that began for ArtsEmerson with a 2015 Fresh Sound Residency following the release of Rankine’s best-selling Citizen: An American Lyric. It continued through the commissioning and presentation of her play The White Card in 2018 and the focus now centers on her new book, Just Us: An American Conversation. The discussion will unpack the issues Rankine wrestles with in this latest collection, among them normalizing whiteness, staying in the room together during tough conversations, and breaching the silence of guilt.
