Combined, artists Carrie Mae Weems and Claudia Rankine have been awarded the Prix de Rome, the National Endowment for the Arts fellowship, the Alpert, the Anonymous Was A Woman grant, the Poets & Writers’ Jackson Poetry Prize, and the National Book Critics Circle Award for poetry, just to name a few. By means of contemporary visual artist and poetry, respectively, the two used their mastery of the arts to address topics of race, class, political systems, and more. Weems and Rankine, who are both MacArthur Foundation fellows, join forces at the Carnegie Library Lecture Hall for its free Poets Aloud Series, where the women will give a presentation followed by a discussion between the two.
