Dr. Ibram X. Kendi, one of the country’s leading anti-racist voices, and the #1 New York Times bestselling author, National Book Award winner, and historian, will discuss his book, How To Be An Antiracist. The book asks us to think about what an anti-racist society might look like, and how we can play an active role in building it. An essential book for anyone who wants to go beyond an awareness of racism to the next step of contributing to the formation of a truly just and equitable society.
Dr. Kendi is the founding director of Boston University’s Center for Antiracist Research and was recently named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world.
Dr. Kendi will be joined in conversation with WBEZ’s award-winning journalist Natalie Moore.
