Brooklyn Talks: Claudia Rankine with Alexandra Bell and Doreen St. Félix
Thursday, July 19, 2018
Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor
Join Claudia Rankine, poet, playwright, and co-founder of the Racial Imaginary Institute, as she examines the often-troubled manifestations of the racial imaginary in American poetry. Her keynote address is followed by a conversation with multidisciplinary artist Alexandra Bell, best known for her public art series Counternarratives, and Doreen St. Félix, a New Yorker staff writer who writes at the intersection between culture and media, and has written incisively on Counternarratives. Bell uses the term “counternarratives” to describe her work, which investigates how images and text work together to affect the cultural imagination and narratives around race.
Presented in partnership with the Racial Imaginary Institute.
