Publisher's Summary

Disclaimer: This is a summary review of the book How to Be an Antiracist and not the original book.

"What would you do if someone were to tell you that not being a racist isn’t good enough? And that you can actually solve many of society’s ills by being an antiracist?

The book How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi points out exactly where and what went wrong with most commonly held views on racism, racist policies, and racial discrimination. He champions the idea that just being not a racist is, in fact, not good enough to effect lasting change in this world beset by racial prejudice and inequity. One should become an antiracist to effectively combat any form of racism.

Using his own personal journey as a backdrop to show and illuminate just how antiracism is taking center stage and is the correct medicine for the chronic disease of racism, he goes on to detail major pivotal points in his life that encouraged his gradual progression toward antiracism. Antiracism can be embraced by anyone, no matter the color, race, or ethnicity. Becoming an antiracist means you are taking a big step in contributing toward building a fair and harmonious society.

Kendi, and it succinctly collates all the important facts into easy-to-remember points for quick and effective understanding of the original work so that you can hit the ground running and start to see the benefits from How to Be an Antiracist in the shortest possible time!

It encourages me to continue!

What I appreciated most about this book is his openness about sharing his own story of racism as he grew and learned and began to understand. It encourages me to continue to try to understand my racism and figure out how to champion anti-racist policies so that we can all live in a better world.

There were other eye-openers!

There were other eye-openers throughout this immensely readable book, too. I highly recommend it, especially if you’re trying to connect action to racism. Being “non-racist” isn’t action, being antiracist is.

Moving forward!

As we move forward with the new presidency, I hope people will continue to channel their newfound wokefullness into pushing our politicians to produce legislation that is anti racist.

Amazing book!

This author defines racism as more than just discrimination based on skin color; there’s a whole intersectionality component to racism that we all need to take a look at before meaningful policy changes can occur.

A great follow-up piece.

One would do well to go deeper after this book: “racism without racists” would be a great follow-up piece.
