As reported in several prior posts on this site, the Fairfax County School Board paid Ibram X. Kendi $20,000 for a one-hour Zoom appearance in August 2020 at the kick-off session for the school year. Fairfax County schools spent an additional $44,000 to purchase his books.
Fairfax Schools Monitor wanted to see what the school officials said about Kendi, and what words of wisdom he conveyed, that warranted paying him $333.33 per minute. (Not a bad rate of pay for someone who preaches that to love capitalism is to love racism!)
