How To Be An Antiracist
by Ibram X. Kendi

August 4, 7:00 PM

Ibram Kendi posits that one cannot be “not racist.” We are either racist or antiracist. His concept of antiracism reenergizes and reshapes the conversation about race in America – pointing us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. Kendi asks us to think about what an antiracist society might look like, and how we can play an active role in building it.

For a fruitful discussion, please read the book before we gather.

True Justice: Bryan Stevenson’s Fight for Equality

True Justice: Bryan Stevenson’s Fight for Equality follows 30 years of EJI’s work on behalf of the poor, the incarcerated, and the condemned. The film won the National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications’s 26th annual Vision Award and has been nominated for a Peabody Award.

Told primarily in his own words, True Justice shares Bryan Stevenson’s experience with a criminal justice system that “treats you better if you’re rich and guilty than if you’re poor and innocent.” The burden of facing this system is explored in candid interviews with associates, close family members, and clients.
