Overview
In a follow up to her groundbreaking book, Don't Let Me Be Lonely: An American Lyrica, poet Claudia Rankine deftly recounts the mounting racial aggressions in modern society, especially the media. Citizen: An American Lyric is a collection of essays, images, and poetry that provides a powerful testament to the individual and collective effects of racism in our contemporary, “post-race” society.

In Citizen, Rankine describes encounters ranging from slight, seemingly slips of the tongue, to intentional offensives. She cites stories of artists, athletes, YouTube stars, and many others to illuminate the threads of racism that run in today’s society.

Citizen: An American Lyric is a powerful look at modern-day racism that is vital to today’s society. It is great food for thought and perfect for any book club, literary event, or small group.
