Martin Luther King Jr. Day Keynote Address with Ibram X. Kendi

Mon. Jan 15 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Colby for the Martin Luther King Jr. Day Keynote Address “Stamped from the Beginning” with Ibram X. Kendi– an award-winning historian and New York Times bestselling author. Along with that great achievement, he is a professor of history and international relations and the founding director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University. 

Kendi’s most recent book, Stamped from the Beginning, won the 2016 National Book Award for Nonfiction. He offers a simple definition of a racist idea: “any concept that regards one racial group in any way.” He also tests the given definition against real-world policies, norms, and prominent figures.
