How to Be an Antiracist: A Conversation

Thursday, Jun. 18, 2020 – Thursday, Jul. 9, 2020

07:00 PM – 09:00 PM


In clear, immediate prose, woven with compelling personal experiences and gripping stories from the recent and distant past, the National Book Award-winning historian Ibram X. Kendi helps us map our experience of race and consciously choose to tear down systemic racism in America in How to Be an Antiracist. His goal is our goal: "to be fully human and to see that others are fully human." Over four weeks, we will read Kendi's book and discuss it together in an online conversation structured to allow us to voice our experience and listen to the experiences of others with compassion and curiosity.
