    Ibram X. Kendi's "How to Be an Antiracist" Book Discussion Now Available on YouTube

    Jul 28, 2020

    Did you miss Ibram X. Kendi’s discussion of his book "How to Be an Antiracist" last week? You can now watch the entire event on YouTube!

    “Kendi's concept of antiracism reenergizes and reshapes the conversation about racial justice in America--but even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. Instead of working with the policies and system we have in place, Kendi asks us to think about what an antiracist society might look like, and how we can play an active role in building it.”
