Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You

Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You by Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi

Publication Information:  New York, NY: Little Brown and Company, 2020

Summary:  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-winning 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.
