Abstract:

From the National Book Award-winning author of Stamped from the Beginning comes a "groundbreaking" (Time) approach to understanding and uprooting racism and inequality in our society--and in ourselves. "The only way to undo racism is to consistently identify and describe it--and then dismantle it."Antiracism is a transformative concept that reorients and reenergizes the conversation about racism--and, even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. At it's core, racism is a powerful system that creates false hierarchies of human value; its warped logic extends beyond race, from the way we regard people of different ethnicities or skin colors to the way we treat people of different sexes, gender identities, and body types. Racism intersects with class and culture and geography and even changes the way we see and value ourselves. In How to Be an Antiracist, Kendi takes readers through a widening circle of antiracist ideas--from the most basic concepts to visionary possibilites--that will help readers see all forms of racism clearly, understand their posionous consequences, and work to oppose them in our systems and in ourselves.Kendi weaves an electrifying combination of ethics, history, law, and science with his own personal story of awakening to antiracism. This is an essential work for anyone who wants to go beyond the awareness of racism to the next step: contributing to the formation of a just and equitable society.Advance praise for How to Be an Antiracist "A combination of memoir and extension of [Kendi's] towering Stamped from the Beginning ... Never wavering ... Kendi methodically examines racism through numerous lenses: power, biology, ethnicity, body, culture, and so forth. ... This unsparing honesty helps readers, both white and people of color, navigate this difficult intellectual territory. ... Essential."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"In this sharp blend of social commentary and memoir ... Kendi is ready to spread his message, his stories serving as a springboard for potent explorations of race, gender, colorism, and more. ... With Stamped From the Beginning, Kendi proved himself a first-rate historian. Here, his willingness to turn the lens on himself marks him as a courageous activist, leading the way to a more equitable society."--Library Journal (starred review)
