    Our guest on the podcast today is Ibram X. Kendi, here to talk about his new book How to Be an Antiracist.  Kendi is a professor of history and international relations, and the founding director of American University's Antiracist Research and Policy Center.   In 2016, his book Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America appeared, a galvanizing new look at racism that posited, in the author's words, a dual phenomenon — the simultaneous evolution of both racial progress and the advancement of racist ideas.  Engrossing and provocative, Stamped from the Beginning took among a number of laurels the 2016 National Book for nonfiction, and in the crisis-crowded years since its analysis has only come to seem more urgent.  Ibram X. Kendi joined us in the studio to talk about his powerful new work, a book that combines memoir and history, essayistic reflection and forceful propositions.
