June 9 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm$15
We’re excited to welcome acclaimed writer Dr. Ibram X. Kendi to the Freedom Center as part of the Mercantile Library’s Harriet Beecher Stowe Freedom Writer series. Dr. Kendi is a leading scholar and voice on antiracism, earning accolades for his books Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America, How to Be an Antiracist and Antiracist Baby.
Dr. Kendi will be in conversation with Professor Emily Houh to discuss his work and his research, the state of equity and the scourge of racism in America and advice for advocates seeking to make the country a place where all can be free.
The Harriet Beecher Stowe Freedom Writer Award series, begun in 2003, honors Stowe, who spoke at the Mercantile Library in 1873. Dr. Kendi received the Harriet Beecher Stowe Freedom Writer Award in 2020 because of his commitment to “writing to change the world.”
Signed copies of Dr. Kendi’s books will be available for purchase.
