The event will host leading “antiracist” authors and scholars, including one of Black Lives Matter’s co-founders.
Tickets range from $10 to $250 and will support the Center for Antiracist Research.

They are “doing it wrong” then if they want to be “anti-racist”.
These days anyone who bills himself as “antiracist” is probably very racist.
BU alum Martin Luther King Jr. was anti-racist. He said that the black nationalists were every bit as wrongheaded as the white supremascists were.
He said that a man should be judged by the content of his character, not the color of his skin.
Today we aren’t even supposed to judge people.
It must be remembered that this is one part of the anti- American goal of building towards a revolution to overthrow the country.
Anyone that is a big enough fool to attend needs to get charged at least a thousand dollars a ticket. I have no doubt that the event will be sold out.
I think (?) it was this past weekend but don’t really care since it would be attended only by racists.
Tickets range from $10 to $250. Can we pay with Confederate money?
Curious if he is arranging an Africa tour for his book?
Racism for fun and profit. The NAZI party is blushing at all this racist garbage. Discovering the “Aryans” can’t compete with the clowns running things now.
I wonder how the book is seen by attendees at this "festival". Is Tom Robinson an "Uncle Tom" for having been so calm,polite and obedient? Is Atticus a Klan member for not having machine gunned Bob Euell,Mayella and the entire jury?
There could be no doubt,of course,that Boo Radley was a racist for having been so pasty white.
Racists and Anti-Racists worship the same god ironically.
Taking an analogy from the “New Math” we see that “Anti-Fascist” is a subset of “Fraud”. If they can redefine “White Supremacy” and “Racism”, I can redefine the super set of the euphemism “Anti-Fascist”. Since it is now considered FRAUD, the implied intent is to mask the Fascist reality of Wokeism.
Do I have that authority to thus redefine terms? Do they?
I too love that book and the movie. I’ve always felt that it is one of them more realistic depiction of children and how they talk and live ever written. I can never see Robert Duval as anything but one of finest actors of our time. Boo Radley was an avenging angel, in my eyes.
But when thinking about this book festival...which I just might attend given it will be held a $1.10 train ride from me...I'd love to know how the book is perceived. If the Maoists can tear down statues of Lincoln they're capable of doing anything in the name of "anti racism".
