    “How To Be An Antiracist"

    by: Ibram X Kendi

    Upon registration, an invitation to join the closed discussion group and RID paperwork for CEUs.  Participants must purchase their own book (available at any book seller, Kindle & library loan). There is no specific time participants need to be on-line. Weekly reflections are posted at the pace of the reader.

    Ibram X. Kendi's concept of antiracism reenergizes and reshapes the conversation about racial justice in America--but even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. Instead of working with the policies and system we have in place, Kendi asks us to think about what an antiracist society might look like, and how we can play an active role in building it. We will use this text as a launching pad to discuss our roles in the Deaf community when advocating for intersectionality, equality, and inclusiveness.
