The Hinesburg Racial Equity Group leads a discussion of Ibram X. Kendi’s book, “How To Be An Antiracist” on Thursday, Feb. 25, 7:30-9 p.m.

Kendi’s concept of antiracism reenergizes and reshapes the conversation about racial justice in America, but even more fundamentally, points toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. Instead of working with the policies and system we have in place, Kendi asks us to think about what an antiracist society might look like, and how we can play an active role in building it.

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 rethinks the most deeply held, if implicit, beliefs and the most intimate personal relationships (including beliefs about race and IQ and interracial social relations) and reexamines the policies and larger social arrangements society supports.
