Choose Antiracism Video Series Student Response

Inspired by Dr. Ibram Kendi’s work of How To Be An Antiracist, Lake Forest College is pleased to launch a video series titled "Choose Anti-racism." This series is a digital library of short educational videos created by College faculty and staff that reflects on each of the chapters from Dr. Ibram Kendi’s work. The videos will be released throughout the year and offer insight on how, as a campus community, we can apply the lessons from each chapter to make Lake Forest College truly anti-racist.
