Last year, more than 3,000 attendees joined us for eight “Race & in America” events. At a pivotal moment, the series served as a virtual platform for colleagues at Brown to think through the myriad ways that anti-Black racism remains an enduring and foundational feature of American society. This year, the series will expand as well as deepen in scope—both in thinking more comparatively about the roots and effects of racism in the U.S. and to explore the arts more fully, in hopes to promote a more just world. Please join us for a panel discussion, Race & Poetry in America on Tuesday, November 30, 2021. The discussion will feature: Colin Channer, Assistant Professor of Literary Arts; Erica Hunt, Bonderman Assistant Professor of the Practice of Literary Arts; Sawako Nakayasu, Assistant Professor of Literary Arts. The event will be moderated by Brian Meeks, Professor of Africana Studies.
