How to be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi (2019)

“My research kept pointing me to the same answer: The source of racist ideas was not ignorance and hate, but self interest.”

“Ibram X. Kendi is today’s visionary in the enduring struggle for racial justice. In this personal and revelatory new work, he yet again holds up a transformative lens, challenging both mainstream and antiracist orthodoxy. He illuminates the foundation of racism in revolutionary new ways, and I am constantly challenged and inspired by his analysis. How to Be an Antiracist offers us a necessary and critical way forward.” – Robin Diangelo, Author, White Fragility
