Book Notes: Citizen: An American Lyric

Citizen by Claudia Rankine
Read Oct 30, 2021 - Dec 7, 2021

Painful and beautiful words, mainly about racism, about being Black in America. Hurts so good.

That time and that time and that time the outside blistered the inside of you, words outmaneuvered years, had you in a chokehold, every part roughed up, the eyes dripping.

That’s the bruise the ice in the heard was meant to ice.

– Claudia Rankine
