Working toward an end of racism in America requires an understanding of our national and local history. The Heritage UU Church Racial Justice Team offers this opportunity for discussion.
How to Be an Antiracist, by Ibram X. Kendi, was named One of the Best Books of the Year by: The New York Times Book Review, Time, The Washington Post, Shelf Awareness, Library Journal, Publishers Weekly, and Kirkus Reviews.
In a time when most people profess that they are “not racist,” Kendi’s acclaimed book provides a clear understanding of what makes a policy or a person “racist” or antiracist.” Examining racism through multiple lenses including power, biology, ethnicity, body, and culture, Kendi helps readers see the many forms of racism clearly, understand their poisonous consequences, and work to oppose them in our systems and in ourselves.
Beginning Monday, July 13, at 7:30, an in-depth, six-session Zoom book discussion will study Kendi’s call to be an antiracist. Sessions will continue every two weeks: Monday; July 13, July 27, August 10, August 24, September 7, September 21. Session #1 will cover the Introduction through Chapter 3.
