Author Ibram X. Kendi's concept of antiracism reenergizes and reshapes the conversation about racial justice in America--but even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. Instead of working with the policies and system we have in place, Kendi asks us to think about what an antiracist society might look like, and how we can play an active role in building it.

The 2020 Martin Luther King Jr. Legacy Series Keynote.
The Advancing One Community Awards will be awarded prior to the keynote address.

Ibram X. Kendi is author of the best-selling books "How to Be an Antiracist" and "Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America." Dr. Kendi is the Founding Director of The Antiracist Research & Policy Center at American University in Washington, D.C. He is one of America's foremost historians and leading antiracist voices.
