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.

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 and Kendi eloquently challenge the common narrative attached to U.S. history. This adaptation, like the 2016 adult title, will undoubtedly leave a lasting impact. Highly recommended for libraries serving middle and high school students. School Library Journal, starred review
An amazingly timely and stunningly accessible manifesto for young people....At times funny, at times somber but always packed with relevant information that is at once thoughtful and spot-on, Stamped is the book I wish I had as a young person and am so grateful my own children have now. Jacqueline Woodson, bestselling and National Book Award-winning author of Brown Girl Dreaming
* "Eye-opening...this engaging overview offers readers lots to think about and should spark important conversations about this timely topic. School Library Connection, starred review
Teens are often searching for their place in the world, in Stamped, Reynolds gives context to where we are, how we got here, and reminds young people-and all of us-that we have a choice to make about who we want to be. This unapologetic telling of the history of racism in our nation is refreshingly simple and deeply profound. This is the history book I needed as a teen. Renée Watson, New York Timesbestselling and Newbery Honor-winning author of Piecing Me Together
* "Required reading for everyone, especially those invested in the future of young people in America. Booklist, starred review
* "Reynolds (Look Both Ways) lends his signature flair to remixing Kendi's award-winning Stamped from the Beginning...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, Kendi and Reynolds's volume is essential, meaningfully accessible reading. Publishers Weekly, starred review
Reading this compelling not-a-history book is like finding a field guide to American racism, allowing you to quickly identify racist ideas when you encounter them in the wild. Dashka Slater, author of The 57 Bus
Reynolds's engaging, clear prose shines a light on difficult and confusing subjects....This is no easy feat. The New York Times Book Review
the must-read book of the moment...potent and provocative --San Francisco Chronicle
Jason Reynolds has the amazing ability to make words jump off the page. Told with passion, precision, and even humor, Stamped is a true story-a living story-that everyone needs to know. Steve Sheinkin, New York Times bestselling and award-winning author of Bomb and Born to Fly
The R-word: Racism. Some tuck tail and run from it. Others say it's no longer a thing. But Dr. Kendi breaks it down, and Jason Reynolds makes it easy to understand. Mark my words: This book will change everything. Nic Stone, bestselling author of Dear Martin
If knowledge is power, this book will make you more powerful than you've ever been before. Ibi Zoboi, author of the National Book Award finalist American Street
Sheer brilliance....An empowering, transformative read. Bravo. Jewell Parker Rhodes, New York Times bestselling author of Ghost Boys
* "Readers who want to truly understand how deeply embedded racism is in the very fabric of the U.S., its history, and its systems will come away educated and enlightened. Worthy of inclusion in every home and in curricula and libraries everywhere. Impressive and much needed. Kirkus Reviews, starred review
* "An epic feat... More than merely a young reader's adaptation of Kendi's landmark work, Stamped does a remarkable job of tying together disparate threads while briskly moving through its historical narrative. Bookpage, starred review
“Reynolds’ ‘remix’ begins in 1415 and travels into the present in five well-paced sections, following the general outline of Kendi’s comprehensive title…elucidated, along with the impact such ideas have on all aspects of American life. Throughout the book, Reynolds inserts pauses (‘Record scratch’) and interjects with commentary (‘Let that sink in’) and clarifications, a way of insisting that the pages are not merely text, but a conversation.” Booklist (starred review)
