Fiction / Non-Fiction

On Borders, Real and Imagined 

What is a border and who or what are they meant to contain? Poets and writers Claudia Rankine (Just Us: An American Conversation), Cathy Park Hong (Minor Feelings: An Asian American Reckoning), and New York Times culture writer Jenna Wortham (Black Futures) discuss borders and their many manifestations through genre, race and ethnicity, migration, the personal vs. political, and cultural vs. national identities. Moderated by Hafizah Geter, author of Un-American.
