How Children’s Books can be Tools for Resistance: A Conversation with Dr. Ibram X. Kendi

How Children’s Books can be Tools for Resistance: A Conversation with Dr. Ibram X. Kendi

Dr. Ibram X. Kendi is an award-winning historian who is known for his best-selling books on antiracism. But a few years ago, he also started writing books for very young children, including a new book “Magnolia Flower,” which he adapted from a short story written by Zora Neale Hurston. In this special episode of Early Risers, Dr. Kendi reflects on his personal journey as a parent and children’s book author, including how children’s books can teach children about cultivating love as a tool for resistance.
