Jemar Tisby Teaches Audiences How to Be Anti-Racist
JEMAR TISBY is a public historian with the ability to explore racial justice solutions and start cultural conversations that compel listeners to action. Tisby discusses these themes in his books, The Color of Compromise—a New York Times bestseller— and How to Fight Racism, as well as in his writing in the Washington Post, CNN, and The Atlantic. Tisby serves as the Assistant Director of Narrative and Advocacy at the Center for Antiracist Research at Boston University, directed by award-winning author and historian, Ibram X. Kendi.
He’s a true knowledge source on the subject of anti-racism, and was featured on Yahoo! news to discuss How to Fight Racism and the intersection between race and religion. He co-hosts the Pass The Mic podcast, which got nearly half a million downloads in 2020, speaks nation-wide at conferences, and is the founder and CEO of The Witness Inc, an organization dedicated to Black uplift from a Christian perspective. He recently interviewed on the Pass The Mic podcast about his book, How To Fight Racism.
Tisby's talks walk through the history of everyday complicity with racism and end with a call to action so that the past does not determine the future. Based on a unique model called the A.R.C. of Racial Justice, his talks prioritize the practical, so audiences walk away with concrete strategies and a theoretical framework for addressing racial injustice today. Tisby helps all audiences realize their responsibility and become allies who are courageous in purposefully stepping up to dismantle racism.
