New! The Racial Imaginary: Writers on Race in the Life of the Mind

We've been eagerly awaiting this new collection of reflections on the racial imaginary in contemporary writing, edited by Claudia Rankine, Beth Loffreda and Max King Cap!

This collection is culled from Open Letter, a web-forum created by Claudia Rankine, poet and author of Citizen: An American Lyric, Don't Let Me Be Lonely: An American Lyric, among others. The forum asked writers to "relate the personal effects and ideological affects of racial difference, and to explore art's struggle to adequately imagine." The letters in this book take many forms and are written from a diversity of experiences and views. Artist Max King Cap rounds out this expansive volume with curated contemporary art-images that "read and see race."
