Introduction

Everyone holds biased beliefs — whether they’re conscious or unconscious. While it’s hard for most of us to acknowledge it, ideas about a group’s or an individual’s behavior, culture, gender, and class all inform various forms of bias.

‘Not being racist’ is considered a passive stance in today’s world; it just isn’t enough.

In How to be an Antiracist, author and African-American studies scholar Ibram X. Kendi defines and dissects what it means to be an antiracist and how it differs from non-racism.

Ibram X. Kendi is a professor, and founder of the Boston University Center for Antiracist research.

Kendi is also the author of Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America, among others.
