Join Ibram X. Kendi, National Book award-winning historian and author of How to Be an Antiracist, and Jesmyn Ward, MacArthur Genius and two-time National Book Award winner, in conversation as part of the “Thinking While Black” series. This virtual event is hosted by the Phil Lind Initiative at UBC’s School of Public Policy and Global Affairs.
This series invites us to consider Blackness as both a culture and a mode of thinking. This series will meditate on the structures of race in North America and will spotlight the seemingly disconnected forms of racial violence that hide in plain sight. How, despite shifts in rhetoric and political policy, have so many forms of racial violence persisted? How, we ask, can we rethink ourselves by understanding our relations to blackness?
