Learn how to be an anti-racist accomplice with New York Times bestselling author and activist Frederick Joseph

February 10 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Learn how to be an anti-racist accomplice with New York Times bestselling author and activist Frederick Joseph as he discusses his new book, The Black Friend: On Being a Better White Person. Writing from the perspective of a friend, Frederick offers candid reflections on his own experiences with racism and conversations with prominent artists and activists about theirs—creating an essential read for white people who are committed anti-racists and those newly come to the cause of racial justice.

“The Black Friend is THE book everyone needs to read right now. Frederick Joseph has written an essential window into the movement toward anti-racism. Read it, absorb it, and be changed because of it.” —Angie Thomas, author The Hate U Give

“For every white person who ever wanted to do better, inside this book, Frederick Joseph offers you both the tools and the chance.” —Jacqueline Woodson, National Book Award Winner
