Summary of How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi: Conversation Starters
How to be an Antiracist is a New York Times best-selling book written by Ibram Kendi tackling about understanding and uprooting racism and inequality that exists in the society. Antiracism is a transformative notion that reorients the conversation about racism. It also gives the readers an idea of liberating new ways of thinking about others as well as our own selves. Racism is a strong idea that results in false hierarchies of human value. It extends to the way people regard each other in terms of ethnicities, skin colors, sexes, gender identities, and body types. Kendi wants the readers to open their minds to a circle of antiracist ideas to help them to realize and understand all forms of racism and its consequences.
