Not Racist or Antiracist: What’s the Difference?

September 16, 7:00 PM

Free

Please join Colby President David Greene, Dean of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Tayo Clyburn, and Assistant Professor of Government Carrie LeVan for a conversation with Ibram X. Kendi, a bestselling author and leading scholar of race and racist policy in America. Please register here to join the discussion.

The event will include time for pre-prepared questions from Colby students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Submit suggested questions for Dr. Kendi to kendievent@colby.edu no later than Monday, September 7. Along with your question, please also include your affiliation with Colby. If your question is selected, you will have the option to ask your question on camera, which will be prerecorded and shown during the live webcast. Note that the event will only be live-streamed, not recorded, and you will need to register in advance. The first 100 who register will have the option to receive a free copy of How to be an Antiracist.

This event is a collaboration of the Center for the Arts and Humanities, the Center for Small Town Jewish Life, the Colby Museum of Art, the Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs, the Lunder Institute for American Art, the Oak Institute for Human Rights, and the Pugh Center. We are committed both individually and collectively to openly discuss and actively address racial inequities at Colby and beyond. We believe this joint collaboration is an important statement of unity and welcome all to participate.
