August Spotlight - Dr. Kendi
Updated: Aug 25, 2022
Black History Month - All Year Long
Dr. Ibram X Kendi is one of America’s foremost historians and leading antiracist scholars. He is a National Book Award-winning and #1 New York Times bestselling author of six books for adults and four books for children, along with the founding director of the BU Center for Antiracist Research. Ibram’s relentless and passionate research puts into question the notion of a post-racial society and opens readers’ and audiences’ eyes to the reality of racism in America today.
Our latest “Black History Month - All Year Long'' design is inspired by Dr. Kendi’s quote, from his book How to Be An Antiracist where he states that “racist ideas love believers, not thinkers.” 20% of all proceeds from this collection goes to Dr. Kendi's Center for Antiracist Research. A center focused around building an antiracist society that ensures racial equity and social justice.

Other popular books by Dr. Kendi include How to Be an Antiracist, where the reader will explore an approach to understanding and uprooting racism and inequality in our society—and in ourselves.
Upcoming books include:
Magnolia Flower, a picture book illustrated by Loveis Wise, coming September 6, 2022. Adapted from a short story by Zora Neale Hurston, this follows a young Afro-Indigenous girl who longs for freedom.
How to Be a (Young) Antiracist will be released on January 31, 2023. Co-authored with Nic Stone, this is a young adult remix of How to Be an Antiracist.
