The opposite of racist isn’t “not racist,” it’s antiracist. The difference may seem like a semantic one, but National Book Award-winning historian Ibram X. Kendi’s new book reveals the wide gap between passivity and activism when it comes to eradicating racism. In How to Be an Antiracist, Kendi, director of American University’s Antiracist Research and Policy Center, and author of Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America, bridges this gap with concrete steps we can all take to create a more just society. With race dominating conversations both personal and political, familial and national, Kendi’s conversation with Mother Jones Race and Justice reporter Jamilah King will provide crucial insight into the power we all have to fight racism.
