What does it mean to be an anti-racist?

On this edition of River to River, we listen back to a conversation from earlier this year with author Ibram Kendi about his book “How to Be an Antiracist.” The book has spent the past 20 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller list.

Later in the show, host Ben Kieffer and two longtime legal scholars from Drake University discuss criminal justice reform as it relates to the Iowa court system and the challenge presented by underrepresenting minority populations in jury pools.

Guests:

· Ibram Kendi, professor and director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University

· David Walker, professor emeritus of law at Drake University

· Russell Lovell, professor emeritus of law at Drake University
