The Optics of The Racial Imaginary

Poet, author, essayist and playwright, Claudia Rankine addresses The Racial Imaginary Institute (TRII), which she co-founded in 2016 to seek to change the way we imagine race in the U.S. and internationally by lifting up and connecting the work of artists, writers, knowledge-producers, and activists with audiences seeking thoughtful, innovative conversations and experiences. Rankine will consider how issues of white dominance are expressed through the visual arts by looking at artists such as Alexandra Bell, Nona Faustine, Toyin Ojih Odutola, Hew Locke, and others.

Claudia Rankine is a Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets and the Frederick Iseman Professor of Poetry at Yale University
