The Racial Imaginary Institute, founded by Claudia Rankine, launched its website in September with a journal’s worth of expanding content inside a url with the The Whiteness Issue, declaring:
“We begin here in order to make visible that which has been intentionally presented as inevitable so that we can move forward into more revelatory conversations about race. Our first project questions what can be made when we investigate, evade, beset and call out bloc-whiteness.”
Please join contributors to The Whiteness Issue (who will read from their work) and The Poetry Project in celebrating the Racial Imaginary Institute’s first publication. With readings by: Steven Glavey, Cathy Park Hong, Joy Katz, Nicole Sealey, Simone White, and Rachel Zucker.
