The Writing Injustice Series presented an Evening with Claudia Rankine on May 11, 2022.
Through literature, film, and other media, the Writing Injustice Book Group invites the Guilford community to explore the issues of race and inequality that shape our history and our world.
Conversations are led and facilitated by Hazel V. Carby, the Charles C. and Dorathea S. Dilley Professor Emeritus of African American Studies and Professor Emeritus of American Studies at Yale University, and Donna Daniels, Ph.D., Vice President, Heron Foundation and Cultural Anthropologist.
Claudia Rankine joined the program online to discuss her latest unsettling of racial discourse in the United States, Just Us: An American Conversation. The book is a series of reflections on her encounters with whiteness as it manifests in friends, therapists, students, and passersby.
