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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Reynolds’s engaging, clear prose shines a light on difficult and confusing subjects, including anti-blackness and the creation of racial capitalism. Terms like ‘segregationist,’ ‘integrationist’ and ‘anti-racist’ are defined in direct, accessible language, becoming real tools for a reader to take from the book. This is no easy feat.” New York Times
“Required reading for everyone, especially those invested in the future of young people in America.” Booklist (starred review)
“More than merely a young reader’s adaptation of Kendi’s landmark work, Stamped does a remarkable job of tying together disparate threads while…employing his signature conversational tone.” BookPage (starred review)
“Reynolds and Kendi eloquently challenge the common narrative attached to US history…Will undoubtedly leave a lasting impact. Highly recommended.” School Library Journal (starred review)
“Told impressively economically, loaded with historical details that connect clearly to current experiences, and bolstered with suggested reading and listening selected specifically for young readers.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Readers who want to truly understand how deeply embedded racism is in the very fabric of the US, its history, and its systems will come away educated and enlightened…Worthy of inclusion in every home and in curricula and libraries everywhere.” Kirkus Reviews
