What Does Antiracism Mean?

What does the contentious word “antiracism” actually mean? David Blight discusses the term with Daniel Martinez HoSang, author most recently of “Under the Blacklight: The Intersectional Vulnerabilities that Covid Lays Bare” (Haymarket Press, 2022, co-edited with Kimberle Crenshaw). Blight is director of the Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition at Yale University’s MacMillan Center. HoSang is Associate Professor of Ethnicity, Race, & Migration and American Studies at Yale. This conversation was recorded in April 2021 as part of CIC’s “Legacies of American Slavery: Reckoning with the Past” initiative.
