Ibram X. Kendi - SOLD OUT
This specially-presented lecture brings 2016 National Book Award-winning historian Dr. Ibram X. Kendi to Seattle University for this dedicated lecture, “How to Be Anti-Racist and Why It Matters.” His book, Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America (Nation Books), has established itself as a vital, essential study of this country’s most rooted notions. Dr. Kendi is presently Professor of History and International Relations and the Founding Director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University, and also the author of The Black Campus Movement.
"An altogether remarkable thesis on history, but, in ways that are both moving and immediately painful, it also reverberates with the post-election autopsy we're all conducting right now... Stamped from the Beginning is a riveting (and often rivetingly written) work, well deserving of the National Book Award."―The Stranger.
