Our next Conversations on Race meeting features a short Stephen Colbert and Ibram X. Kendi video about anti-racism. If you have heard the term “anti-racism” and wonder what it means, here is your chance to find out from the man who created the term.


Dr. Ibram X. Kendi, historian and author of the books How to be Antiracist and Antiracist Baby talks with Stephen Colbert about his concept. They also discuss the advantages of a more equitable society for both white Americans as well as for persons of color. Following the 12-minute video, attendees online and at the Abbot Library will have the opportunity to speak and to listen to each other’s responses to the presentation.


These ongoing Marblehead Racial Justice Team conversations offer a safe and welcoming place in which we explore privilege, biases, and questions. This is a place for listening, conversation, and engagement. We hope we can continue to learn and grow together so that we can make a difference.
