Past diversity speakers

Ibram X. Kendi

“People would ask me, in a very concrete way, how to be antiracist,” Kendi said in an interview. “Eventually I realized that it was a question that I could answer."

In response, Kendi wrote How to be Antiracist, which we discussed in our reading groups last year. That program culminated in Kendi joining us at the Madam Walker Legacy Center.

Rabbi Sandra Lawson

Also known as the Snap Chat Rabbi, Sandra Lawson pushes the boundaries of the intersections of queer, black and Jewish. Rabbi Sandra’s vision is to help build a more inclusive Jewish community where all who want to come are welcomed, diversity is embraced, and people can come together to learn and to pray.
