Part of TALK series, Civil Rights Revisited
Discussion Leader: Carmaletta Williams

This poetic work crosses boundaries in its sojourn into American race relations in the twenty-first century. Rankine turns a critical eye to everything from tennis superstar Serena Williams to everyday microaggressions on the subway. As one of the blurbs on the back of her book reads, "[Citizen] lovingly embraces and articulates the trauma and contradictions of what happens when one person is spat upon and another person spits."
