Shaker Heights Schools and the Shaker Heights Teachers' Association are partnering on a book dialogue which is open to all community members. The dialogue will center around Ibram X. Kendi's 2019 book, "How to be an Anti-Racist," a follow-up to his National Book Award-winning book "Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America." This book dialogue will be facilitated by John Morris, President of the SHTA and Erica Merritt of the Equius Group. The first ten people to RSVP will receive a free copy of the book!
Kendi's concept of anti-racism re-energizes and reshapes the conversation about racial justice in America---but even more fundamentally, he points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. Kendi asks us to think about what an anti-racist society may look like and how we can play an active role in building it.
The dialogue series can accommodate 50 participants. Please complete this Google Form to RSVP.
