A Reno Family Foundation Symposium-

How to be an Antiracist: An Evening with Dr. Ibram Kendi

Professor Ibram Kendi joins the Museum of Science, Boston for a one-night-only virtual conversation about the urgent issues of race, equity, and justice in America today. As one of the nation's foremost historians and leading antiracist voices, Professor Kendi's bestselling memoir, How to be an Antiracist, has become a guiding force in the current conversation and movement for racial justice in our country.

Professor Kendi's concept of antiracism reenergizes and reshapes the conversation, but even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. Instead of working with the policies and systems we have in place, Professor Kendi asks us to think about what an antiracist society might look like, and how we can play an active role in building it.

In his memoir, Professor Kendi weaves together an electrifying combination of ethics, history, law, and science — including the story of his own awakening to antiracism. 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 Antiracist has 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, and now the Museum of Science invites you to a special, intimate conversation with the brilliant mind behind it.

In conversation with L'Merchie Frazier, Boston Artist-in-Residence; Director of Education at the Museum of African American History; Director of Creative Engagement of Transformative Action Program/Violence Transformed; Women of Color Quilter's Network artist; and resident AAMARP artist at Northeastern University
