Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You
A Remix of the National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Beginning
Narrated by Jason Reynolds / 4 hours 11 minutes
“This “not history, history book” is a remix of Ibram X. Kendi’s adult book, Stamped From the Beginning. In Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You, Jason Reynolds tells the narrative of racism throughout time with a young adult audience in mind. From the first racist, to slavery, to modern politics, Reynolds revelations surrounding the history of racism and our current struggles with racism are eye-opening and important. Ultimately, he asks each of us if we’re choosing to be a segregationist, an assimilationist, or an anti-racist. A must-read for both young adults and adults.”Kristina, Auburn Oil Co. Booksellers
