Description

We all occasionally think or do things that are racist.

No one considers themselves to be a racist. Yet the divisions and inequalities of racism are all around us. In this game-changing, empowering book, Ibram X. Kendi, founding director of the Antiracism Research and Policy Center, shows that racism is so engrained in our world and yet so taboo that we often fail to recognise it, especially in ourselves. But until we do so, we can only perpetuate the problem.

Using his extraordinary gifts as a teacher and story-teller, Kendi helps us break the cycle by leading us with moving humility through his own journey from racism to antiracism. He provides a comprehensive account of the misconceptions that so often cloud our understanding, from arguments about what race is and whether racial differences exist to the complications that arise when race intersects with ethnicity, class, gender and sexuality.

In the process he demolishes the myth of the post-racial society and builds from the ground up a vital new understanding of racism – what it is, where it is hidden, how to identify it and what to do about it.
