Please join us for a conversation with Dr. Ibram X. Kendi. As recent events show, the judiciary, no less than any other social institution, is confronted with questions of entrenched racism and implicit and explicit bias. There is perhaps no one more qualified to speak to judges about these issues than Dr. Kendi.
A renowned scholar, speaker, and public intellectual, Dr. Kendi is the author of the New York Times bestseller, “How to Be an Antiracist,” and “Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America,” winner of the 2016 National Book Award. Dr. Kendi is the founding director of the Boston University Center for Antiracist Research and holds the Andrew W. Mellon Professorship in the Humanities at BU.
Participants are urged to read “How to Be an Antiracist” and submit questions in advance for Dr. Kendi by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
