Kendi will present his new book and answer questions from Mayor Poe on Thursday, Nov. 21 at 12:30 pm at Library Headquarters in Meeting Room A.
In How to be an Antiracist, Kendi weaves memoir and social commentary to challenge readers to re-examine their beliefs and envision how to create an antiracist society.

Kendi was a professor at UF when he was awarded the National Book Award in 2016.
