When the first Black president headed into the White House, Americans were imagining their nation as colorblind and went so far as to call it post-racial. With the arrival of Donald Trump many people are awakening and seeing racial reality for the first time. With opened minds, people are actively trying to understand racism. In this deeply personal and empowering lecture, Kendi shifts the discussion from how not to be racist to how to be an antiracist. He shares his own racist ideas and how to overcome them. He provides direction to people and institutions who want more than just band-aid programs, but actual antiracist action that builds an antiracist america.
