In the wake of the George Floyd murder, the call for racial justice and equality has become amplified and increasingly widespread across the nation. One solution has been the “anti-racist” philosophy, popularized by writers like Ibram X. Kendi and Robin DiAngelo. But a new “anti-woke” Black intelligentsia has been pushing back against what they say is a racial essentialism baked into the anti-racist theory.

Join American Public Square at Jewell and the Forward as we explore the ideas between thinkers on both sides of what is one of the most crucial questions facing our nation.

Panelists include Isaac J. Bailey, Kmele Foster and John McWhorter.
