  1. Dear Dr. Kendi,
    The recent murder of George Floyd and the subsequent protests have prompted me to take steps to enable me to learn about my racism. I have purchased two of your books to begin my passage and was wondering where I might turn to further explore my quest.
    Welcome to Boston and BU. I know you enjoy living here.
    My best. Stay safe and be well.
