An Evening With Dr. Ibram X. Kendi Sponsored By Suburban Library Partnership
Dr. Ibram X. Kendi, one of the country's leading anti-racist voices, and the #1 New York Times bestselling author, National Book Award winner, and historian, will discuss his book, How To Be An Antiracist at a live, moderated Zoom event on Monday, November 9 at 6pm.
How To Be An Antiracist asks us to think about what an anti-racist society might look like and how we can play an active role in building it. It has been described as an essential book for anyone interested in moving beyond an awareness of racism to the next step of contributing to the formation of a just and equitable society. The New York Times calls How To Be An Antiracist “the most courageous book to date on the problem of race in the Western mind.”
Dr. Kendi is the founding director of Boston University's Center for Antiracist Research and was recently named one of Time magazine's 100 most influential people in the world.
Dr. Kendi will be joined in conversation with WBEZ’s award-winning journalist Natalie Moore.
This event is presented in partnership by the Arlington Heights Memorial Library, Aurora Public Library, Deerfield Public Library, Glencoe Public Library, Highland Park Public Library, Lake Villa District Library, Northbrook Public Library, Schaumburg Township District Library, Skokie Public Library, Vernon Area Public Library and Wilmette Public Library.
An Evening with Dr. Kendi will begin at 6pm on Monday, November 9. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Visit lvdl.org or call 847.356.7711.
