Ibram X. Kendi
This event is sold out. There will be a standby line at the door.
The founding director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University and a professor of history and international relations there, Ibram Kendi received a 2016 National Book Award for his work on racism and history in this country, Stamped From the Beginning. He makes a welcome return for his much-anticipated new book, How To Be an Antiracist (One World).
Two of note, from Seattle, weigh in with early praise, along with many others: “Ibram Kendi’s work, through both his books and the Antiracist Research and Policy Center, is vital in today’s sociopolitical climate. As a society, we need to start treating antiracism as action, not emotion—and Kendi is helping us do that.”—Ijeoma Oluo.
“Ibram Kendi is today’s visionary in the enduring struggle for racial justice. In this personal and revelatory new work, he yet again holds up a transformative lens, challenging both mainstream and antiracist orthodoxy. He illuminates the foundations of racism in revolutionary new ways, and I am consistently challenged and inspired by his analysis. How to Be an Antiracist offers us a necessary and critical way forward.”—Robin DiAngelo.
