Stamped from the Beginning (515 pp)

In his ambitious, illuminating, and engaging book, Ibram X. Kendi seamlessly assembles sources from Cotton Mather to Angela Davis, the Great Awakening to Black Lives Matter, the Birth of a Nation to Hip Hop culture, to show how not only race but racist ideas are a the center of American thought.”--Paula J. Giddings, EA Woodson Professor, Smith College

Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You (258 pp.; ages 12 and up)

"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.
