Dionne Brand: Writing Against Tyranny and Toward Liberation

“I do not write toward anything called justice, but against tyranny and toward liberation.” Dionne Brand offers thoughts on poetry in the current political moment, as well as a reading from Ossuaries.

This video was recorded on April 25, 2017 at Barnard College in NYC. It is an excerpt from the event “Poetics of Justice: A Conversation Between Claudia Rankine and Dionne Brand” which is part of the series Caribbean Feminisms on the Page.
