Ibram X. Kendi to speak at NCC's Christian Unity Gathering

September 5, 2019

Author and historian Ibram X. Kendi will be one of the featured speakers at this year’s National Council of Churches’ Christian Unity Gath­ering in Hamp­ton, Virginia.

Kendi joins a slate of speakers at the October event that includes Olav Fykse Tveit, general secretary of the World Council of Churches; Agnes Abuom, moderator of the World Coun­cil of Churches Central Committee; and Mark L. Mac­Donald, the Anglican Church of Canada’s first National Indi­genous Anglican Archbishop.

The theme of this year’s gathering is ending racism, a subject Kendi has written two books about—his most recent being How to Be an Antiracist. —Christian Century staff
