How to Be an Antiracist by Dr. Ibram X. Kendi

Virtual Discussions will take place:

September 1st 7:00-8:30p on Intro to Chapter 9

September 8th 7:00-8:30p on Chapters 10-18

Register to be part of the discussion

Dr. Kendi weaves a combination of ethics, history, law, and science with his own personal story of awakening to antiracism. This is essential work for anyone who wants to go beyond the awareness to the next step: contributing to the formation of a just and equitable society.

Antiracism is a transformative concept that reorients and reenergizes the conversation about racism – and, even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. In How to Be an Antiracist, Dr. Kendi takes readers through a widening circle of antiracist ideas – from the most basic concepts to visionary possibilities – that will help readers see all forms of racism clearly, understand their poisonous consequences, and work to oppose them in our systems and in ourselves.
