New York Times best-selling author to discuss anti-racism book on Nov. 4
Dr. Ibram Kendi, one of the country's foremost historians and leading anti-racist voices, will discuss his best-selling book "How to Be an Antiracist" during a free virtual presentation hosted by Madison College on Wednesday, Nov. 4.
"This is a timely and relevant event," said Lucía Nuñez, Madison College's vice president of Equity, Inclusion, and Community Engagement. "We are addressing the disparities that hurt our students and community so we can move beyond awareness to actions that eradicate inequities."
Kendi's latest work is receiving rave reviews. It has been named one of the best books of the year by the New York Times Book Review, Time, National Public Radio, The Washington Post and Publishers Weekly.
"How to Be an Antiracist punctures the myths of a post-racial America, examining what racism really is—and what we should do about it.”—Time
"Equal parts memoir, history, and social commentary, Ibram Kendi uses his own life journey to show us why becoming an antiracist is as essential as it is difficult. This book is honest, brave, and most of all, liberating." —James Forman, Jr., Pulitzer-Prize winning author of Locking Up Our Own
"Kendi has gifted us with a book that is not only an essential instruction manual but also a memoir of the author’s own path from anti-black racism to anti-white racism and, finally, to antiracism."—NPR
Dr. Kendi's free virtual discussion on "How to Be an Antiracist" is part of the "Madison College Talks" series. It runs from 6:30-8 p.m. Click here for more information and to register for the event.
