The quote is "In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist" is widely attributed to Angela Davis. However, we don't know if this is from a book, article or interview. A librarian on the EDI Facebook group, thinks it was in an interview, but I've not found it. A colleague of mine found this site, which says Davis said/wrote this in 1979 -


I feel like I should be able to find it for the patron, but I haven't had luck. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
