East Bay Reads Discusses How to Be An Antiracist

East Bay Reads is a new book group that brings neighbors together to encourage each other to read, discuss, and act. Our inaugural discussion will feature Ibram X. Kendi’s New York Times bestselling book, How to Be an Antiracist.

“The opposite of racist isn’t ‘not racist.’ It is ‘anti-racist.”  What’s the difference? One either allows racial inequities to persevere, as a racist, or confronts racial inequities, as an anti-racist. There is no in-between safe space of ‘not racist.’”  How To Be An Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi
