Welcome to the Princeton Club of Washington - VIRTUAL EVENT: Princeton Women's Network Book Club - July 2020 Meeting

 

VIRTUAL EVENT: Princeton Women's Network Book Club - July 2020 Meeting

Finding you have lots more time to read in this season of social distancing? Eager to connect with fellow DC Tigers and talk about your favorite books, precept style?


The Princeton Women’s Network of DC (PWN-DC) is thrilled to announce it will be hosting its third VIRTUAL BOOK CLUB meeting, scheduled for Wednesday, July 15th at 12:00 pm ET. During the meeting, Tigers of all years, backgrounds, and professions will join to discuss the July selection - How to be an Antiracist - by Ibram X. Kendi.
 
One of America's foremost historians and antiracist activists, Kendi is a professor of history and international relations at American University and the founder of the school's world-renowned Antiracist Research and Policy Center (beginning this July, Kendi will be moving to Boston University, where he will launch the school's Center for Antiracist Research; he has also been named a 2020-2021 Frances B. Cashin Fellow at Harvard's Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study). He is the author of The Black Campus Movement, which won the W.E.B. Du Bois Book Prize, and Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America, which won the National Book Award for Nonfiction in 2016.

In his third book, How to be an Antiracist, Kendi reenergizes and reshapes the conversation surrounding racial justice in America, defining the opposite of "racist" as not "not racist" but actively and thoughtfully "anti-racist." Instead of working with the policies and systems we have in place, Kendi asks us to consider what an antiracist society might look like, weaving together an electrifying combination of ethics, history, law, and science - as well as his own personal awakening to anti-racism. 

 

Date: Wednesday, July 15th

 

Time: 12:00 pm ET

  

Where: Online (Zoom)
