Review of After David Hammons by Claudia Rankine

After David Hammons by Claudia Rankine, a newly elected Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets, was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on January 17, 2013.  For those who don't know (I had to look it up), David Hammons is, according to www.moma.org, an American installation artist, most famous for his work in New York City inspired by the civil rights and black power movements.  Ms. Rankine's poem is overtly inspired by the African-American experience, but I had trouble finding direct parallels to Hammons.
