Dr. Ibram Kendi Joins NLIHC’s Diane Yentel to Discuss Racial Justice in the Time of COVID-19

Dr. Ibram X. Kendi, author of How to Be an Antiracist and Founding Director of The Antiracist Research & Policy Center at American University in Washington, DC, joined NLIHC President and CEO Diane Yentel on May 21 to discuss racial justice during and after COVID-19. Throughout the hour-long conversation, Dr. Kendi and Diane discussed the definition of being “anti-racist,” the discipline that being anti-racist requires, and the importance of anti-racist policies to undo centuries of structural racism and the harm it does to people of color. They discussed how decades of racist housing and other policies made today’s disproportionate harm of COVID-19 on people of color possible, concrete steps for the housing community to take in advancing anti-racist housing policies and programs, and much more.
