Ibram X Kendi talks to DeRay Mckesson at the Edinburgh International Book Festival
We all occasionally do things that are racist, yet often fail to recognise it. Ibram X Kendi is a founding director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center in Washington DC. How To Be an Antiracist is his extraordinary guidebook which helps build a vital new understanding of racism – and how to work against it. This superb teacher and storyteller took to the stage at the Edinburgh International Book Festival for an inspiring and thought-provoking conversation with the American educator-activist DeRay Mckesson, a key figure in the Black Lives Matter movement and author of On the Other Side of Freedom. This event was filmed live at the 2019 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
