Ibram X. Kendi has raised our awareness of the importance of persistent, dedicated antiracist work. Being antiracist is an everyday commitment; in order to build a more equitable and just society, we must be diligent, making antiracist choices at every turn. Meaningful change can start at the micro-level; these conversations starters will help you along the way.
When did you first become aware of racism? When did you first become aware of your race? Where does racism exist? What does "resistance" mean to you? Why is talking about race important? Why now?
Whether you choose to ponder these questions alone or with family, friends, or community groups, the 100 cards in The Antiracist Deck will help you lead discussions on race, racism, antiracism, and intersectional topics like class, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, power, and more.
