#30DayEducationChallenge: Day 30 How to be an anti-racist

Monday, July 20, 2020

Day 30- we're on the final day! If you've completed the challenge, you've taken an important step in the fight against racism and now have a responsibility to act. For our last day we are listening to Ibram X. Kendi discuss how to be an antiracist t Unlocking Us With BrenĂ© Brown. Kendi is a historian, leader in the antiracism movement, author of four best selling books,  the Andrew W. Mellon Professor in the Humanities, Founding Director of the Boston University Center for Antiracist Research, a contributor writer at The Atlantic and a CBS News correspondent, and a  Frances B. Cashin Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for the Advanced Study at Harvard University.

Kendi explains that the opposite of racist isn't "not racist", it's anti-racism. It's not enough to simply not be a racist, we have to actively fight racism. There is work to do on ourselves and constant self evaluations and criticism required to uproot racism - you in?
