What'd Barbara Say Today?

I’m sure you exist but guess
Barbara Kruger, 'We don't need another hero'Dump
Barbara Kruger, 'Your body is a battleground'

Claudia Rankine, 'Don't Let Me Be Lonely'


Simone White, Kyoo Lee, and Gabriel Ojeda-Sague joined Al Filreis to discuss a passage from Claudia Rankine’s Don’t Let Me Be Lonely: An American Lyric. The discussion follows Rankine's extrordinarily synthesis of various huge issues: illness and death, memory loss and the misery of forgetting, the ubiquitous frame-setting of television, incarceration, police violence, useful and useless language, antidepressants, and the poem as a social assertion of “here.”
