Save The Date for WHAT NOW: AN ANTIRACIST TEACH-IN with Professor Ibram X. Kendi

In one week, One World, the WNBA and NBA will kickoff WHAT NOW: AN ANTIRACIST TEACH-IN! Professor Ibram X. Kendi, the acclaimed author of How To Be An Anti-Racist, will be dialoguing each night with one of America’s leading authors and special guests from the WNBA and NBA, hosted each night by a different Black-owned bookstore.

WHAT NOW: An Antiracist Teach-In is a weeklong virtual conversation series featuring dialogues between Professor Kendi and other prominent thought leaders and activists. Through these conversations, we hope to listen, learn, and reflect as Americans chart a path forward for our country—and ourselves. Each ticket comes with a book, fulfilled by a different Black-owned bookstore each night, and admission to that evening’s conversation.
