Part 3 of 5: The Power of Change
Randy Mayeux is back with another book discussion! This month he will be going over Ibram X. Kendi's 'How to Be an Antiracist'.
 
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the National Book Award–winning author of Stamped from the Beginning comes a “groundbreaking” (Time) approach to understanding and uprooting racism and inequality in our society—and in ourselves.

“The most courageous book to date on the problem of race in the Western mind.”—The New York Times

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review • Time • NPR • The Washington Post • Shelf Awareness • Library Journal Publishers Weekly Kirkus Reviews

Randy Mayeux is back with another book discussion! This month he will be going over Ibram X. Kendi's 'How to Be an Anti racist'.
You must RSVP on LHChamber.com to receive the Zoom link.

Book Synopsis:

Ibram X. Kendi's concept of anti racism reenergize and reshapes the conversation about racial justice in America--but even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. Instead of working with the policies and system we have in place, Kendi asks us to think about what an anti racist society might look like, and how we can play an active role in building it.

In his memoir, Kendi weaves together an electrifying combination of ethics, history, law, and science--including the story of his own awakening to anti racism--bringing it all together in a cogent, accessible form. He begins by helping us rethink our most deeply held, if implicit, beliefs and our most intimate personal relationships (including beliefs about race and IQ and interracial social relations) and reexamines the policies and larger social arrangements we support. How to Be an Anti racist promises to become an essential book for anyone who wants to go beyond an awareness of racism to the next step of contributing to the formation of a truly just and equitable society.

It's another book in our series contemplating change and how we can change. 

You must RSVP to obtain the link.
