One Book...One Campus...One Community 2019-2020: Book Resources

A campus guide to Indiana University Northwest's One Book...One Campus...One Community selection for the 2019-2020 academic year, "They Can't Kill Us Until They Kill Us" by Hanif Abdurraqib.



Poet, writer, and cultural critic Hanif Abdurraqib uses his distinctly ruminative voice and deep investment in popular culture and music to dissect the everyday threats to the lives of black Americans. In They Can't Kill Us Until They Kill Us, inspired by the music of Ice Cube, Abdurraqib covers a cross-section of experiences, form attending a Bruce Springsteen concert the day after visiting Michael Brown's grave in Ferguson, to the first time he was ordered to the ground by police officers -- for attempting to enter his own car. Chicago poet and author of 'Wild Hundreds', Nate Marshall joins Abdurraqib for what's sure to be dynamic if sobering conversation.

Sponsored by the Asheville City Schools Foundation. Hanif Abdurraqib answers UNC Asheville student questions in a Lunch and Learn presentation.
