How has the development of American democracy accepted and even relied on the reality of American racism? Is it possible for American democracy to move beyond what feels like an insurmountable racial division and acrimony? Join Humanities New York and the Buffalo Humanities Festival as we explore these and related questions with Ibram X. Kendi and Chenjerai Kumanyika.

Ibram X. Kendi is one of America’s foremost historians and leading antiracist voices. He is a New York Times bestselling author and the Founding Director of The Antiracist Research & Policy Center at American University in Washington, DC, where he is professor of history and international relations. He is the author of Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America, which won the National Book Award for Nonfiction, and the recently published How to Be an Antiracist.

Chenjerai Kumanyika is a researcher, journalist, and artist who works as an assistant professor in Rutgers University’s Department of Journalism and Media Studies. His research and teaching focus on the intersections of social justice and emerging media in the cultural and creative industries. Kumanyika is the Co-Executive Producer and Co-Host of Gimlet Media’s Uncivil, a new podcast on the Civil War.
