This is not a history, history book.

Dr. Ibram X. Kendi's "Stamped from the Beginning," an amazing adult nonfiction title, has been reimagined with the assistance of Jason Reynolds and put forth for a younger audience in "Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You." They very clearly state that this isn't a history book - at least not a history book like anything you've ever read before. Spanning from 1415 to today, they approach the narrative of racist ideas in America: from thoughts and practices brought over from Europe, to constitutional denials from the founding fathers, to the evolution of Jim Crow, all the way to #BlackLivesMatter. Written in a gripping style and very clearly worded, this book is a glimpse of comprehension on very complex issues. Recommended for teens and adults alike.
