Publisher Description

The #1 New York Times bestselling, "must-read" (San Francisco Chronicle), "amazingly timely and stunningly accessible" (Jacqueline Woodson) exploration of race and racism from award-winning, beloved authors Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi
This is NOT a history book.
This is a book about the here and now.
A book to help us better understand why we are where we are.
A book about race.

The construct of race has always been used to gain and keep power, to create dynamics that separate and silence. This remarkable reimagining of Dr. Ibram X. Kendi's National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Beginning reveals the history of racist ideas in America, and inspires hope for an antiracist future. It takes you on a race journey from then to now, shows you why we feel how we feel, and why the poison of racism lingers. It also proves that while racist ideas have always been easy to fabricate and distribute, they can also be discredited.

Through a gripping, fast-paced, and energizing narrative written by beloved award-winner Jason Reynolds, this book shines a light on the many insidious forms of racist ideas--and on ways readers can identify and stamp out racist thoughts in their daily lives.   Download the free educator guide here: https://www.hachettebookgroup.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Stamped-Educator-Guide.pdf

Sean Wittbold ,

Not a Kendi fan, but credit where credit is due.

Read this book recently to broaden my knowledge and better understand where people are coming from esp. those promoting CRT. I must admit, Kendi and Jason’s research is well informed and thorough - the books provides quite a bit of perspective. That said both are clearly very articulate and intelligent but found the writing quite a bore at times. I’m also hesitant to agree that Kendi’s assertion of racism existing today in a more sinister / evil form is true. Anyways, definitely worth a read - certainly more tolerable than listening to him talk if you’ve ever heard his lectures.

Hmmm

I don’t know how to feel about this book, it made me view things very differently, that’s for sure.

Insightful

When viewed per the title and purpose of the book, Dr. Kendi delivered on point. The research done behind the book and the narrative style is excellent, quotes from the professional reviews described exactly my journey reading the book, and overall time week spent. From my perspective, as I am not American, I gained a lot of insight about the problems in America, especially the religious aspect of it. Coincidentally, while in Amsterdam early last year, I read about their perspective of the May Flower as they celebrated this key event in American history, and the words chosen to describe the group is in clear contrast from American text. As with everything, there is always a different perspective, Dr. Kendi’s choices of tour guides in the book has accomplished that beautifully.
