Ibram X. Kendi is a historian and the Founding Director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University. His books include The Black Campus Movement and Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America, in which Kendi chronicles how racist ideas were developed, disseminated and enshrined in American society, leading us to a present state of racism that is more sophisticated and insidious than ever. Kendi’s newest book, How to Be An Antiracist, re-energizes and reshapes the conversation about racial justice in America, asking us to think about what an antiracist society might look like, and how we can play an active role in building it.

Jelani Cobb has been a staff writer for The New Yorker since 2015, writing on subjects of race, politics, history, and culture. Cobb’s books include The Substance of Hope: Barack Obama and the Paradox of ProgressTo the Break of Dawn: A Freestyle on the Hip Hop Aesthetic, and the collection, The Devil and Dave Chappelle and Other Essays. He is the Ira J. Lipman Professor of Journalism at Columbia University, specializing in post-Civil War African American history, 20th century and modern American politics, and the history of the Cold War.
