When: Thu., Jan. 18, 5:10 p.m.
Take a break from memes and bar hopping and grab a notebook because it’s time for some cultural schooling. In the first installment of the University of Michigan’s Penny Stamps lecture series, MacArthur “Genius” Claudia Rankine teams up with former co-artistic director of ArtsEmerson and dramaturge, P. Carl. Rankine is the author of five collections of poetry as well as an editor of several anthologies including The Racial Imaginary: Writers on Race in the Life of the Mind. Carl was enlisted as dramaturge on Rankine’s upcoming play The White Card and will offer thoughtful insights into how a performance can serve as a conduit for change.
