Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You

Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You

"In this remix for young readers of Dr. Ibram X. Kendi's Stamped from the Beginning, Kendi and Jason Reynolds break the history of anti-Black racism and anti-racism all the way down to its roots in Europe before the Trans-atlantic slave trade. But as Reynolds says, this is not merely a history book full of dates and names that feel so far away.... it is a present book, "a book about the here and now" that connects this history to realities young people face today. Through 600 years, we follow the stories of segregationists, abolitionists, and assimilationists, ultimately showing us that racism is not the result of individual ignorance but of a system of white supremacy. Kendi and Reynolds do not shy away from tough topics such as Jim Crow, lynching, and The War on Drugs, and detail the oft glossed over history of anti-racist and revolutionary forces from John Brown and the Watts Rebellion to the Black Panthers and the Haitian Revolution — all things I NEVER learned about in school. I've never before seen a book such as this for young people (and if there is another, please tell me so I can read it right away)."

The #1 New York Times bestseller and a USAToday bestseller!

A timely, crucial, and empowering exploration of racism—and antiracism—in America

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.
