The Family Action Network, (FAN) opens their fall season with best-selling author Ibram X. Kendi. In his new book, How to Be An Antiracist, Kendi weaves a combination of ethics, history, law, and science—including the story of his own awakening to antiracism—for a refreshing approach that will radically reorient America on the urgent issues of race, justice, and equality.
"Ibrahim Kendi uses his own life journey to show us why becoming an antiracist is as essential as it is difficult. Equal parts memoir, history, and social commentary, this book is honest, brave, and most of all liberating." --James Forman, Jr., Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Locking Up Our Own
"Groundbreaking . . . Kendi dissects why in a society where so few people consider themselves to be racist the divisions and inequalities of racism remain so prevalent.How to Be an Antiracist punctures the myths of a post-racial America, examining what racism really is--and what we should do about it." --Time
