Attending the 3rd Annual National Antiracist Book Festival

On Saturday, April 30, 2022, the Center attended the National Antiracist Book Festival #AntiracistBookfest, hosted by Boston University's Center for Antiracist Research.

If the mark of an excellent conference is not being able to attend more than one session at a time, this event was truly excellent.


We attended the following live sessions:

  • Session 1: On the Pursuit of Justice with Laura Coates and Dorothy Roberts

  • Session 2: On Double Consciousness with Honorée Fanonne Jeffers and Jason Mott

  • Session 3: On Black Biography with Keisha N. Blain and Peniel E. Joseph

  • Session 4: On Colorism with Brit Bennett and Kaitlyn Greenidge

  • Session 5: On Guns with Toni Jensen and Carol Anderson

  • Session 6: On Doing the Work with Layla Saad and Michelle Mijung Kim

  • Session 7: On Healing and Love with Grace M. Cho and Valarie Kaur

  • Session 8: On 1619 with Nikole Hannah-Jones and Ibram X. Kendi

  • Session 9: On Enslavement and Memory with Clint Smith and Tiya Miles

We are thankful that our ticket includes access to sessions that we were unable to attend.
