Publisher Description

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.

Quotes

  • An intricate look at the history of race in the United States.

    - Time
  • A staggering intellectual history of racism in America that is both rigorous and...readable.

    - The New Republic
  • A deep (and often disturbing) chronicling of how anti-black thinking has entrenched itself in the fabric of American society.

    - The Atlantic
  • An "engrossing and relentless intellectual history of prejudice in America...The greatest service Kendi [provides] is the ruthless prosecution of American ideas about race for their tensions, contradictions and unintended consequences.

    - Washington Post
  • —George Saunders, Financial Times, Best Books of 2017

    -
  • "We often describe a wonderful book as 'mind-blowing' or 'life-changing' but I've found this rarely to actually be the case. I found both descriptions accurate for Ibram X. Kendi's Stamped from the Beginning... I will never look at racial discrimination again after reading this marvelous, ambitious, and clear-sighted book."

    -
  • “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.”
