In order to continue the crucial conversations that began during our 2020 NEA Big Read of Claudia Rankine’s award-winning “Citizen: An American Lyric,” Shake Rag Alley is hosting a monthly antiracism book club.
Join us via Zoom to discuss the anthology The Fire This Time.
In this bestselling, widely lauded collection, Jesmyn Ward gathers our most original thinkers and writers speak on contemporary racism and race, including Carol Anderson, Jericho Brown, Edwidge Danticat, Kevin Young, Claudia Rankine, and Honoree Jeffers. The Fire This Time shines a light on the darkest corners of our history, wrestles with our current predicament, and imagines a better future.
Learn more about this year’s book selections on our Antiracism Book Club page.
