About The Book

Title: How to Be an Antiracist

Author: Ibram X. Kendi

Publication Date: 2019

Description: Antiracism is a transformative concept that reorients and reenergizes the conversation about racism—and, even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. At its core, racism is a powerful system that creates false hierarchies of human value; its warped logic extends beyond race, from the way we regard people of different ethnicities or skin colors to the way we treat people of different sexes, gender identities, and body types. Racism intersects with class and culture and geography and even changes the way we see and value ourselves. In How to Be an Antiracist, Kendi takes readers through a widening circle of antiracist ideas—from the most basic concepts to visionary possibilities—that will help readers see all forms of racism clearly, understand their poisonous consequences, and work to oppose them in our systems and in ourselves.

Kendi weaves an electrifying combination of ethics, history, law, and science with his own personal story of awakening to antiracism. This is an essential work for anyone who wants to go beyond the awareness of racism to the next step: contributing to the formation of a just and equitable society.

“Ibram X. Kendi’s new book, How to Be an Antiracist, couldn’t come at a better time. . . . Kendi has gifted us with a book that is not only an essential instruction manual but also a memoir of the author’s own path from anti-black racism to anti-white racism and, finally, to antiracism. . . .  How to Be an Antiracist gives us a clear and compelling way to approach, as Kendi puts it in his introduction, ‘the basic struggle we’re all in, the struggle to be fully human and to see that others are fully human.’ ”—NPR

About the ICF NYC Breakfast and Book Club

Meetings will be held consistently on the second Monday of each month at 8 AM New York time (except where may be otherwise indicated).  Attendance at every meeting is not necessary.  You may participate based upon your preference for the book.  The intended purpose of this offering is to broaden and deepen our knowledge of current practices in the coaching profession and in the business world.

Please register early!  If registration is low, or non-existent, for any specific book, we will revisit the selection and float a poll to the membership to select a replacement book.  We therefore encourage participants to register early for meetings so that we may assess interest at an early stage.

Meeting Guidelines:

  • Please be sure to read at least portions of the book so that meaning, intent and application may be discussed with depth.  

  • As with any virtual call, please be prepared to have your video and audio on, with limited distraction.  Turn off all notifications.  

  • Come in your pajamas! We don’t care about how you look, only the intellectual contribution you bring.
