About this Event

Have you heard of the explosion of books being published on the history of, experiences from, and ways to undertake racial justice work? Are you committed but wish to be better informed? Do you read but seek a place to discuss and ask questions?

WRJI is hosting a monthly Anti-racist Book Club, the third Sunday of every month, 3-4:30 p.m. Six books will be chosen, then repeated in a second 6-month cycle.

Register for any session, February-July, to attend the first 6-month series. Feel free join the second round (August-January) for any books you have to miss. The Book Club is free. Participants will be asked to contribute to WRJI to support administration and facilitation.

Book Club Month THREE:

How to be an Antiracist

by Ibram X. Kendi

How to be an Antiracist is an exploration of antiracism that reenergizes and reshapes the conversation about racial justice in America--but even more fundamentally, points 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.

In this book, Kendi weaves together an electrifying combination of ethics, history, law, and science, bringing it all together with an engaging personal narrative of his own awakening to antiracism. How to Be an Antiracist is an essential work for anyone who wants to go beyond an awareness of racism to the next step: contributing to the formation of a truly just and equitable society.
