iHeartMedia and Pushkin Industries will co-produce a iHeartRadio Original Podcast "Be Antiracist with Ibram X. Kendi." The new thought-provoking podcast will be hosted by Ibram X. Kendi - one of America's foremost historians and Founding Director of the Boston University Center for Antiracist Research. Dr Kendi's books, including the #1 New York Times bestseller How to Be an Antiracist, have become seminal texts on the myths of a post-racial America. The show's first episode will premiere on June 9.

The weekly interview show will build on his extensive body of antiracist work, challenging listeners to consider what an antiracist society might look like and how individuals and communities can play an active role in building it. For ten episodes Kendi will be joined by notable guests from the worlds of politics, academia, journalism and beyond to discuss the antiracist policies, platforms and narratives human beings should rally around to build a just and equitable world.

"After a year that laid bare the pervasive racial inequity that continues to plague our nation, we must continue the difficult but necessary conversations that will allow us to imagine and erect a truly antiracist society," said Ibram X. Kendi. "I look forward to exploring these topics with guests whose work I deeply admire and digging deep with them and with listeners."

"‘Be Antiracist with Ibram X. Kendi' will bring Dr. Kendi's essential insights to millions of listeners around the world," said Will Pearson, Chief Operating Officer for the iHeartPodcast Network. "The show speaks to many of the deeply-rooted issues the past year has brought to light and enables listeners to benefit from the perspectives of some truly unparalleled guests."
