As we commemorate Black History Month, Temple Emanu-El is honored to welcome to our Friday night Shabbat service one of America’s leading voices in the struggle for racial equity and social justice, Dr. Ibram X. Kendi, MacArthur Fellow, National Book Award winner, #1 New York Times bestselling author and founder of the Center for Antiracist Research at Boston University.
Weaving together law, history, ethics and science, Dr. Kendi poses provocative questions about what an antiracist society might actually look like and will discuss what we each need to do in order to move beyond awareness of racism to the formation of the truly just and equitable society we, as Jews, are commanded to create.
