Professor Ibram X. Kendi is one of America’s foremost historians and leading antiracist voices. He has spent his career driving racial research, research-based policy innovation, educational and advocacy campaigns, and narrative-change initiatives. Professor Kendi recently published the books How to Be An Antiracist and Antiracist Baby to educate people on how to join the fight against racism. In both of these books, he explains it’s not enough to be “not racist.” He argues that to end racial disparities, it takes antiracism: actively standing against racism and replacing racist policies with policies that promote equity.

More and more people are starting to realize that being neutral or passively opposing racism actually perpetuates racial injustice. Many of these people want to do more, however, they don’t know where to start or they’re not convinced they can have an impact as an individual. This talk will empower those who want to get involved by educating viewers on the concept of antiracism and providing them with tools and strategies they can use to play a more active role in building an antiracist society.

The Search for Racial Equity Series is a global forum offering an in depth study and dialog of racial equity and justice, through forthright discussion and a syllabus that intends to amplify the most authentic and powerful voices of our time and of this movement.
