About the book
How to Be an Antiracist
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, Dr. 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
