This facilitation guide is designed to accompany Ibram X. Kendi’s book How to Be an Antiracist. Kendi’s book inspired the learning arc of the guide.
I would like to extend thanks to those who participated in the inaugural BCcampus Book Club Hub in fall 2021. Your engagement and feedback informed the evolution and development of various iterations of this resource.
Thank you to the BCcampus equity, diversity, and inclusion group for their support, suggested resources, and voluntary participation in the guide’s activities. Thank you to the program heads and my fellow colleagues at Royal Roads University’s School of Communication and Culture who provided an impetus for me to explore and hone my pedagogical approach.

I acknowledge the traditional territories throughout B.C. where the contributors to this guide reside.
