Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You: A Remix of the National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Beginning
About this item
This is the rare kind of book that illuminates the past and can literally change the way readers view and behave in the world around them. While the subject matter is devastating, the book ultimately offers a hopeful message, and can help readers educate themselves to combat racism and racist ideas in their own lives.
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.
