‘How to be an Antiracist’ Summer Reading & Discussion Group

book coverRegister here

VP Institutional Diversity and Inclusion, CIC and SCSJ at Creighton University invite you to read and discuss “How to be an Antiracist.”

Students, faculty, staff and alumni are invited to read “How to Be an AntiRacist” and join four virtual discussion groups over June and July 2020.

The major themes of “How to Be an AntiRacist” intersect and compliment much of the ongoing and burgeoning work on racial justice and racial healing across the Creighton University community and the Greater Omaha community. To halt the persistence and perpetuation of racism and racist structures, interested individuals have to be proactive and go beyond being neutral.

This series of summer discussions based on Kendi’s critically acclaimed book is a prime opportunity to engage in the ongoing paradigm shift taking place when considering race, racism, and reconciliation.

Participants will be further equipped to engage both in their circles of influence as well as new networks. The hope is that conversations reach across generations, social, racial and other divides with each individual feeling seen and heard.

To join, you must be available for all four sessions: Wednesdays June 10, June 17, July 8 and July 15 from 2-3 p.m. (Central Time) via Zoom.

Limited e-book scholarships are available. Otherwise we encourage participants to check local library e-book access or purchasing your own.

To be considered for a book scholarship, you must register by May 15.
