We can let racism stand, or we can stand against it. Readers will follow a young Kendi as he learns (and unlearns) lessons that help shape his understanding racism. Kendi's concept of antiracism reenergizes and reshapes the conversation about racial justice in America. Even more fundamentally, it points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. He asks us to think about what an antiracist society might look like, and how we can play an active role in building it.
