How to be an Antiracist
by Ibram X. Kendi

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. 

Plan to join us via Zoom on Sunday morning, July 12, 2020 at 11:00 AM for a discussion of this book. Our discussion will be led by Alexandra Fields. We hope you will join us in beginning this learning process together.

Alexandra Fields was raised on Chicago’s North Shore before moving to New York to attend Barnard College. She began her career working in the office of admission at her alma mater, where she served as liaison to the college’s targeted access programs for low income and underrepresented students. After witnessing the variation in college preparedness amongst incoming students, and how this variation too often coincided with race, geography, and socio-economic status, she transitioned into college counseling, first at a public charter school in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn where she supported a class of students of color from low-income households who were largely first generation college going, then at The Fieldston School, an independent school in the Bronx, and currently at Latin School of Chicago where she serves as Co-Director of College Counseling. At Fieldston, Alexandra facilitated white affinity spaces when students of color staged a week long lock-out, and she currently co-leads the antiracist white affinity space at Latin.
