The Columbia School of Social Work recently hosted a conversation between Associate Professor Courtney Cogburn and Boston University’s Andrew W. Mellon Professor Ibram X. Kendi about the ideas put forth in the latter’s 2019 book, How to Be an Antiracist. In this episode of Social Impact LIVE, host Richard Hara (bio) sits down with Assistant Provost for Faculty Advancement Adina Berrios Brooks (bio) and Karma Lowe (bio), CSSW’s Assistant Dean for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, to talk about the perspectives shared at this event. How can proposals for antiracist individual actions and systemic change be applied within the context of Columbia University? What next steps can Columbia take to build an antiracist community?
