Race, Violence and 'Sincerely Yours:' Letter-writing as a narrative response to the news
Michael Brown. Tamir Rice. Vincent Chin. NYPD officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos. When news of racially motivated police shootings and hate crimes protests permeated Angie 
Chuang’s class on race and journalism at American University, Chuang led her 19 students on an experimental exercise: randomly select one name of someone who lost their life in racially motivated violence, then research and write a personal letter to the deceased. This simple exercise grew into a student-produced, self-published book, “Gasping for Air: Letters About Race and Social Injustice.” Chaung and CMCI Media Studies PhD student D. Ashley Campbelll will read letters from the book and lead a discussion.
