Virtual Conversation with Author Ibram X. Kendi
In collaboration with CSU Chico’s Book in Common program, OC Public Libraries, and additional community partners, we are thrilled to present a virtual conversation with author Ibram X. Kendi. Participating libraries and community members will be invited to join others across the state for this special event. Ibram X. Kendi is the author of How to Be An Antiracist and is one of the world’s foremost historians and leading antiracist scholars.
This event is a tie-in to “Book to Action,” a community-wide program from the California Center for the Book to Read/Discuss/Act during the months of March-June. The programming is centered around the Book The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett. We will be hosting two book discussions and a number of online programs around the issues this book brings up: race identity, transgender identity, colorism, passing, among others.
