Ep 147: How to Be An Anti-Racist
Anna and Amanda discuss the winner of the International Booker Prize The Discomfort of Evening by Marieke Lucas Rijneveld, translated by Michele Hutchison.
Our book of the week is How To Be An Anti-Racist by Ibram X. Kendi. In a mix of study and memoir, Kendi argues that being neutral about racism is not enough: we have to be anti-racist. Described as “transformative” (Robin Di Angelo), “courageous” (New York Times) and “electrifying” (The Voice), this is a timely book and a New York Times and Sunday Times best-seller.
