Despite myths of a postracial world, racism is alive and well. In his “engrossing and relentless intellectual history of prejudice in America” (Washington Post), the historian Ibram X. Kendi traces the arc of antiblack racist ideas from 15th-century Portugal to the founding of the United States, arguing that we must confront the history of racist ideas in order to grapple with racism’s insidious hold on America. UCLA Professor of History Brenda Stevenson joins Kendi in conversation.
