Please note: This talk is part of our Fall Conference 2018. You must have registered for the conference to attend this event.

When the first Black president was elected, some Americans imagined that their country was colorblind, even post-racial. But racism is very much alive in America, and more overt. As many people are coming to see America’s racial reality, they are trying to understand racism for the first time. In this deeply personal and empowering lecture, Ibram X. Kendi shifts the discussion from how not to be racist, to how to be an antiracist, offering direction to those who want to see a real antiracist America.

Led by: Ibram X. Kendi, Professor and Director, Antiracist Research and Policy Center Department of History, American University

Dr. Kendi’s appearance at the Fall Conference 2018 is made possible with support from the Vermont Community Foundation, the Fountain Fund of the Vermont Community Foundation, and Patricia Fontaine.
