Book Series:
How to be an Anti-Racist by Ibram X. Kendi
Thursdays, (Aug 27, Sept 3, 10 and 17) 3:00-4:15pm MST
Learn to live with greater awareness of the racist messages that we internalize. What’s our part on shifting this way of thinking?

Read the book in advance, share the learning in conversation, and identify ways we can change our beliefs and habits, policies and organizations, so we, too, can be antiracist.

Book description from Amazon:

Antiracism is a transformative concept that reorients and reenergizes the conversation about racism and, even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. At its core, racism is a powerful system that creates false hierarchies of human value; its warped logic extends beyond race, from the way we regard people of different ethnicities or skin colors to the way we treat people of different sexes, gender identities, and body types. Racism intersects with class and culture and geography and even changes the way we see and value ourselves.  In How to Be an Antiracist, Kendi takes readers through a widening circle of antiracist ideas from the most basic concepts to visionary possibilities that will help readers see all forms of racism clearly, understand their poisonous consequences, and work to oppose them in our systems and in ourselves. Kendi weaves an electrifying combination of ethics, history, law, and science with his own personal story of awakening to antiracism. This is an essential work for anyone who wants to go beyond the awareness of racism to the next step: contributing to the formation of a just and equitable society.
