Winter 2021 Book Club

Read "How to be an Antiracist"
by Ibram X. Kendi

How to be an AntiracistThe Foothill College Office of Instruction invites staff, faculty, student leadership and administrators to participate in a Winter Quarter 2021 book club for Ibram Kendi's national bestseller "How to Be An Anti-Racist," led by Interim Associate Vice President of Instruction Kurt Hueg.

To contribute to the college's ongoing work to advance our facility and comfort level with conversations about race, this book club will study Kendi's "groundbreaking approach to understanding and uprooting and racism and inequality in our society--and in ourselves." (Time Magazine)

The book club will be guided by Kendi's own suggested questions for group discussions, and we will create space for courageous conversations, open dialogue, and multiple perspectives.

The discussion group is an opportunity for members of the college community to improve their comfort level in discussing issues of race and is welcome to those who have already read the book and would like to share in the discussions.

In tandem, we'll review Kendi's "Antiracist Baby" book, which helps children (and parents) learn the language for critical conversations about race at an early age.
