- He - Him
As mentioned in the main February Monthly Awareness - Celebrating Black Women Successes thread, this month we are also inviting TVN members to join us for a read-along of Ibram X. Kendi's book, "How to be an AntiRacist". So let's read and discuss "How to be an Antiracist" by Ibram X. Kendi. Starting 1 Feb, in this thread, we will post discussion topics related to the book read-along. You can share comments and thoughts there. On February 10th, 18th, and maybe another day or two, we will meet up on Discord and have a discussion about the book. From time to time (during the month) here in this thread, we will post some additional thoughts to consider while reading this book AND we hope you will share with us some of your thoughts, experiences, insights about the book by posting responses.
So let's get the discussion started....
1 Feb: Let's talk about ...
1. In How to Be an Antiracist, Kendi shares his own experience with racist thinking. How does his honesty help give us space to acknowledge and name our own racist behaviors and attitudes?
2. Kendi writes, “The only way to undo racism is to constantly identify it and describe it—and then dismantle it.” Why does he believe we need to call out racism when we see it, even if it can be uncomfortable to identify?
