Thank you to all that attended the Dr. Ibram X. Kendi Luncheon on December 2, 2019!


SOLD OUT - A luncheon featuring Dr. Ibram X. Kendi!

Thank you to all that attended our luncheon event featuring Dr. Kendi. This sold out event was hosted by Mercantile Bank, Grand Valley State University, and the Urban League of West Michigan. The special afternoon featured Dr. Ibram X. Kendi, one of America’s foremost historians and leading antiracist voices.  In his new book, How to Be An Antiracist, Kendi holds up both a magnifying glass and a mirror to examine how to uproot racism from society—starting with ourselves.

“We know how to be racist.
We know how to pretend to be not racist.
Now let’s know how to be antiracist.”
