Ibram X. Kendi stated Wednesday that teaching young students anti-racism was a “prudent thing to do for teachers.”
The Boston University professor was a featured speaker at the 2021 TEACH conference, a virtual event hosted by the American Federation of Teachers.
The conversation occurred at a time of heightened focus across the nation on CRT in classrooms. It also represents the latest push by Kendi to advance anti-racism in American institutions.
Campus Reform previously reported on the opening of Kendi’s second anti-racism center at Boston University, his “anti-racism” book festival, and the time he dismissed the arguments of concerned parents who were against CRT.
Kendi did not respond to request for comment; the story will be updated accordingly.
