Historian and American University professor Ibram X. Kendi, who wrote the National Book Award–winning history Stamped from the Beginning, is out with a new (and slightly shorter) work that helpfully draws the distinction between being "not racist" and "anti-racist." Since the phrase has been co-opted by many groups to serve many different ends, merely claiming you're "not racist" has become meaningless. Saying you're anti-racist means you're actively trying to repair the wounds of racist policy and prevent any more damage from being done. Kendi will elaborate more on this distinction in his talk, drawing on newly unearthed moments in American history to illustrate the point. Local writer Ijeoma Oluo, author of So You Want to Talk About Race, will moderate.
