National Book Foundation Presents: Building a More Equitable World: Carol Anderson and Ibram X. Kendi

  • Montgomery City-County Public Library (map)

Following the election of Barack Obama, many claimed that we were living in a post-racial society. But in the era of Black Lives Matter, Charlottesville protests, and intensified culture wars, it’s apparent that we have a long way to go toward a just world. How do authors write about race during these times? How do art and culture offer powerful tools to help us to engage audiences around racial equity and justice? Join 2018 NBA Nonfiction Longlister Carol Anderson (One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression Is Destroying Our Democracy) and 2016 NBA Nonfiction Winner Ibram X. Kendi (Stamped From the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America) for an enlightening evening on how the power of art can inform and transform cultural narratives.
