Meet the award winning author, historian Ibram X. Kendi whose book, How to be an Antiracist, is #3 on this week's New York Times Best Sellers List!

"The only way to undo racism is to consistently identify and describe it--and then dismantle it."

Ibram Kendi brings an original approach to understanding and uprooting racism and inequality in our society and in ourselves.  He weaves a combination of ethics, history, law, and science, together with an engaging personal narrative of his own awakening to antiracism.

Become part of a conversation with Kendi, and examine ideas for how we can go beyond an awareness of racism and contribute to the formation of a truly just and equitable society.  Until we become part of the solution, we can only be part of the problem.

USC Students-Only Session:  Noon to 1:15 p.m.  

USC Faculty-only Session: 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.

All attendees will receive a copy of his book!

Ibram X. Kendi is a New York Times bestselling author and the founding director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University. A professor of history and international relations and a frequent public speaker, Kendi is a contributing writer at The Atlantic. He is the author of THE BLACK CAMPUS MOVEMENT, which won the W.E.B. Du Bois Book Prize, and STAMPED FROM THE BEGINNING: THE DEFINITIVE HISTORY OF RACIST IDEAS IN AMERICA, which won the National Book Award for Nonfiction.
