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.
