We recommend this…

for everyone!

Our quick summary

This is a real perspective shift. Ibram X. Kendi changes the discussion from whether something or someone is racist or not, to recognising that everyone has been exposed to racist thinking and messages, much of which will have gone in unconsciously. In How To Be Antiracist, Kendi combines rigorous scholarship with compelling storytelling, breaking it all down, busting myths, and bringing the reader to a positive new role in making change.

Publisher’s description

‘Transformative and revolutionary’ ROBIN DIANGELO, author of White Fragility

‘So vital’ IJEOMA OLUO, author of So You Want to Talk About Race

In this rousing and deeply empathetic book, Ibram X. Kendi, one of the world’s most influential scholars of racism, shows that neutrality is not an option: until we become part of the solution, we can only be part of the problem. Using his extraordinary gifts as a teacher and story-teller, Kendi helps us recognise that everyone is, at times, complicit in racism whether they realise it or not, and by describing with moving humility his own journey from racism to antiracism, he shows us how instead to be a force for good. Along the way, Kendi punctures all the myths and taboos 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.
