CCAD goes live: A Talk with Hanif Abdurraqib
Poet and author 

Poet and author Hanif Abdurraqib (@nifmuhammad) is a Columbus native and author of They Can't Kill Us Until They Kill Us, selected by the Department of Writing, Literature & Philosophy as the First-Year Common Read for the 2020–2021 academic year. The public is invited to a CCAD Goes Live conversation with Abdurraqib on Instagram on Thursday, Sept. 24, 2020 at noon EST.  

They Can't Kill Us Until They Kill Us, Abdurraqib’s first collection of essays, was released in 2017 by Columbus-based small press Two Dollar Radio. It was named a book of the year by Buzzfeed, Esquire, NPR, Oprah Magazine, Paste, CBC, The Los Angeles Review, Pitchfork, and The Chicago Tribune, among others. Abdurraqib is a Callaloo Creative Writing Fellow, an interviewer at Union Station Magazine, and a poetry editor at Muzzle Magazine. He is also a member of the poetry collective Echo Hotel with poet/essayist Eve Ewing.

While Columbus College of Art & Design’s physical campus is temporarily closed, you can still hear from guest expert artists, designers, and innovators across our program areas who will share their insight and answer questions from the CCAD community during interactive Instagram Live sessions on @ccadedu. These sessions come as part of CCAD’s ongoing commitment to scholarship, inquiry, and creative thinking in which the college regularly brings in leading artists, scholars, and thinkers to share their work and their insights with our students and the community as a whole.
