Join the Colby Community for a discussion with Ibram X. Kendi, a best-selling American author and leading scholar of race and discriminatory policy in America, from 7–8 p.m. on Wednesday, September 16.
Colby students, faculty, staff, and alumni can register for the live Zoom conversation here.
The virtual event will include time for pre-prepared questions from both students and faculty. We want to hear from you! What questions do you want to ask Dr. Kendi? Please submit your questions and reflections on this unique opportunity to Kimberly Flowers, executive director of the Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs, at email@example.com no later than Monday, September 7. If your question is selected, you may have the opportunity to ask it on camera as part of the live webcast.
Many of you may be most familiar with Kendi as the author of How to Be an Antiracist, a book that was part of the Colby AntiRacist Book & Film Club this summer that included hundreds of Colby students, staff, and alumni. Kendi was recently named the director of the Center for Antiracist Research at Boston University and will serve as the Frances B. Cashin Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for the Advanced Study at Harvard University this academic year.
This event is a collaboration of the Center for Arts and Humanities, Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs, Lunder Institute for American Art, Oak Institute for Human Rights, and Pugh Center.
