Wednesday, April 18th: Belonging in America

Belonging in America
Institute for Public Knowledge (20 Cooper Square, 5th Fl., Manhattan)
Free, bring photo id

What does it mean to belong? To belong in America? To belong to America? From an emotional state to a legal one, to one coded in our DNA, how have the conditions of belonging changed? Is belonging an ambition to embrace? A challenge to resist? How do you belong in America? As a queer. As a woman. An African-American. An immigrant. A white working class male? Please join Alondra Nelson, Darryl Pinckney, Elizabeth Povinelli, and Kirk Semple as they each share their thoughts on Belonging in America. The event will be moderated by Harel Shapira.
