Ibram X. Kendi's List of Reading Suggestions

From Ibram X. Kendi's "An Antiracist Reading List: Ibram X. Kendi on books to help America transcend its racist heritage," New York Times Book Review, May, 29, 2019, Reprinted May 2020.   

"No one becomes “not racist,” despite a tendency by Americans to identify themselves that way. We can only strive to be “antiracist” on a daily basis, to continually rededicate ourselves to the lifelong task of overcoming our country’s racist heritage."






"The Negro Artist and the Racial Mountain" by Langston Hughes The Nation, June 23, 1926
