Beckwith Lecture: Claudia Rankine

Thursday, February 11, 2021 @ 6:00 pm

Tufts University Art Galleries presents author and poet Claudia Rankin for its spring semester Beckwith Lecture.  As everyday white supremacy becomes increasingly vocalized with no clear answers at hand, how best might we approach one another? Rankine, without telling us what to do, urges us to begin the discussions that might open pathways through this divisive and stuck moment in American history.  In her latest book, “Just Us,” Rankine invites us to discover what it takes to stay in the room together, even and especially in breaching the silence, guilt, and violence that follow direct addresses of whiteness.

Rankine is the author of five books of poetry, including “Citizen: An American Lyric” and “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely”; three plays including “HELP,” which premiered in March 2020 (The Shed, New York City), and “The White Card,” which premiered in February 2018 (ArtsEmerson/American Repertory Theater); as well as numerous video collaborations.
