SCRIPPS PRESENTS: A LITTLE DEVIL IN AMERICA: HANIF ABDURRAQIB in conversation
This virtual event starts at 5:00 PM PT on April 1 and will be available on a private YouTube link.
Hanif Abdurraqib, the essayist, poet and cultural critic whose work has been published in The Fader, Pitchfork, The New Yorker, and the New York Times, turns his keen eye on Black performance with his new book, A Little Devil in America. Join him for a conversation about performances big and small, famous and lesser-known, and the resonances each have in Black and White cultures, the politics of American empire, and his own personal history.
This program is funded by the Alexa Fullerton Hampton ’42 Fund
Scripps Presents is an electrifying mix of storytellers and artists, policymakers and musicians—and everything in between. Founded in 2016, audiences can partake in evening conversations and performances at Scripps’ Claremont campus and venues around Southern California; @Noon, featuring new writing and scholarship; and concerts under the Levitt on the Lawn banner. Many programs are now available virtually through the College’s Vimeo and YouTube channels.
Join Scripps College as we present eye-opening, mind-bending, genre-defying tête-à-têtes with the thinkers and doers, writers and performers, whose passions and perspectives are changing the way we see the world.
