We have no doubt that “How to Be an Antiracist” author Ibram X. Kendi scores these sorts of gigs all the time, but Campus Reform managed to obtain a copy of a contract between Kendi and the University of Michigan for a one-hour Zoom session last November, at a cost of $20,000.

Before you factor that over the number of students watching, keep in mind that “the contract stipulated that if the event went over 1,000 attendees, Penguin Random House would charge a higher amount.”

Kendi spoke for 45 minutes and took questions for 15 before logging off.

Remember when Kendi offered to give 45 minutes of “mentorship time” to celebrate Meghan Markle’s 40th birthday? We suppose he could afford it, seeing how Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey gave him $10 million, no strings attached, back in 2020.

Campus Reform says the talk “centered around the Boston University professor’s book “Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America.'” As a bonus, here’s a student recording his teacher heartily endorsing the kids’ version of “Stamped.”

“Why are we talking about this?”
