Claudia Rankine is the author of five collections of poetry, including Citizen, Winner of 2014 National Book Critics Circle Award, and Don’t Let Me Be Lonely, and the plays Provenance of Beauty: A South Bronx Travelogue, commissioned by the Foundry Theatre and Existing Conditions (co-authored with Casey Llewellyn). Her bold writing on race and the intersection of imagination and reality is both formally innovative and relevant. Her work illuminates the cultural dimensions of the contemporary crisis in black America.

Rankine, Henry G Lee Professor of English at Pomona College, is co-editor of American Women Poets in the Twenty- First Century series with Wesleyan University Press and The Racial Imaginary with Fence Books.
