September 12, 2019 @ 3:30 pm - 6:00 pmFree
“We know how to be racist. We know how to pretend to be not racist. Now let’s know how to be antiracist.” – Ibram X. Kendi
Borealis Philanthropy, the Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society and Northern California Grantmakers (NCG) are excited to invite you to a special afternoon with Ibram X. Kendi, one of America’s foremost historians and leading antiracist voices.
In his new book, How to Be an Antiracist, Kendi holds up both a magnifying glass and a mirror to examine how to uproot racism from society—starting with ourselves. Followed by his talk, Kendi will be joined in conversation by john a. powell of the Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society, Lateefah Simon of the Akonadi Foundation, and moderated by Alice Y. Hom of Northern California Grantmakers.
Signed copies of How to Be Antiracist will be available for sale 30 minutes before and after the event.
