Questioning U.S. Identity In the Aftermath of 9/11
By FELICIA R. LEE

To answer the question of what it means to be an American citizen in these turbulent times, the poet Sekou Sundiata traveled the country for two years, conducting classroom discussions and attending potluck dinners to forage for people's personal experiences to add to his own insights. The result is ''The 51st (dream) State,'' a hyperactive mosaic of poetry, music, dance and videotaped interviews that has its New York premiere on Wednesday at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
