A rare opportunity to witness two of the most lauded and celebrated North American poets of recent years in conversation. With careers spanning several decades, Dionne Brand and Claudia Rankine discuss their writing to date, and how they have used the form to explore and dissect issues of institutional racism, feminism, migration, capitalism, language, and memory to tell the story of who we are. Chaired by Jess Brough.
