YWCA Book Club: How To Be An Antiracist

On Thursday, May 20, 2021 from 6pm to 7:30pm, YWCA’s book club will be discussing Ibram X. Kendi’s 'How To Be An Antiracist'.
In his memoir, Kendi weaves together an electrifying combination of ethics, history, law and science – including the story of his own awakening to antiracism – bringing it all together in a cogent, accessible form. He begins by helping the reader rethink their most deeply held, if implicit, beliefs and their 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' promises to 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.
This book club discussion will take place virtually. Register on YWCA's website to join the May 20 discussion.
