Raising Antiracist Kids: Ibram X. Kendi with Derecka Purnell

June 18, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Free – $25

Join us for a discussion about raising antiracist kids with author of the new book, AntiRacist Baby, Ibram X.Kendi in conversation with Derecka Purnell.

A new uprising across the country demanding racial justice is a powerful reminder that families of all backgrounds need to be pro-active in raising children to understand racism and discrimination, and helping our kids to be a force for anti-racist change in the world.

With bold art and thoughtful yet playful text, AntiRacist Baby introduces the youngest readers and the grown-ups in their lives to the concept and power of antiracism. Providing the language necessary to begin critical conversations at the earliest age, AntiRacist Baby is the perfect gift for readers of all ages dedicated to forming a just society.

For parents who may feel hesitant or unprepared to have conversations about race and racism, this board book provides a simple, smart, and honest starting from one of America’s thought leaders on the subject. Click here for more information.
