How to be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi
Sunday, September 13, 2020 11:00am
In “How to be an Antiracist, Kendi takes readers through a widening circle of anti- racist 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.”
Join us as we explore the ideas brought forward in this timely book. We will consider how it speaks to us as individuals and as members of the Jewish community.
