Citizen' Book Discussion and Writing Response

Join the College of Education's Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to discuss our reflections on Claudia Rankine's book, Citizen.

The book lays bare moments of racism that often surface in everyday encounters. It combines poetry with commentary, visual art, quotations from artists and critics, slogans, and scripts for films. It's "an anatomy of American racism in the new millennium" (Bookforum).

Participants will be invited to write their own reflections on past experiences with microaggression and/or micro-validation. We imagine our individual and collective goals for future advocacy and care in our "diverse-city" of Athens, Georgia.

Copies of Citizen will be given out (one per household) to event attendees while supplies last.

Monday, March 25 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm
