FILE - In this Jan. 17, 2015 file photo, Claudia Rankine attends the 46th NAACP Image Awards Nominees' Luncheon in Beverly Hills, Calif. Gene Luen Yang, a prize-winning author and the national ambassador for young people’s literature, and Rankine, one of poetry’s brightest and most innovative stars, are among this year’s 23 MacArthur fellows and recipients of the so-called “genius” grants. The fellows were announced Thursday, Sept. 22, 2016, by the Chicago-based John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, which gives each honoree $625,000 over five years to spend any way he or she pleases, with no strings attached. (Photo by Rob Latour/Invision/AP, File)
