An essential read 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.
Dr. Kendi is the founding director of Boston University's Center for Antiracist Research and was recently named one of Time magazine's 100 most influential people in the world.
Dr. Kendi will be in conversation with Natalie Moore, who covers segregation and inequality for Chicago's WBEZ.
