Product description


"the must-read book of the moment...potent and provocative"----San Francisco Chronicle

"Reynolds's engaging, clear prose shines a light on difficult and confusing subjects....This is no easy feat."--The New York Times Book Review

* "An epic feat... More than merely a young reader's adaptation of Kendi's landmark work, Stamped does a remarkable job of tying together disparate threads while briskly moving through its historical narrative."--Bookpage, starred review

* "Reynolds (Look Both Ways) lends his signature flair to remixing Kendi's award-winning Stamped from the Beginning...Told impressively economically, loaded with historical details that connect clearly to current experiences, and bolstered with suggested reading and listening selected specifically for young readers, Kendi and Reynolds's volume is essential, meaningfully accessible reading."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

Praise for Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You:

"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

* "Eye-opening...this engaging overview offers readers lots to think about and should spark important conversations about this timely topic."--School Library Connection, starred review

* "Readers who want to truly understand how deeply embedded racism is in the very fabric of the U.S., its history, and its systems will come away educated and enlightened. Worthy of inclusion in every home and in curricula and libraries everywhere. Impressive and much needed."
--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "Required reading for everyone, especially those invested in the future of young people in America."--Booklist, starred review

* "Reynolds and Kendi eloquently challenge the common narrative attached to U.S. history. This adaptation, like the 2016 adult title, will undoubtedly leave a lasting impact. Highly recommended for libraries serving middle and high school students."--School Library Journal, starred review

"If knowledge is power, this book will make you more powerful than you've ever been before."--Ibi Zoboi, author of the National Book Award finalist American Street

Reviewed in the United States on 25 March 2020
Reynolds's writing is superb. Kendi's thinking transforms your world. The book grabs you and holds on to the end.

Together, the two make the case that the “construct of race has always been used to gain and keep power, whether financially or politically” (p. 245). They begin with a story about the “world’s first racist,” Gomes Eanes de Zurara’s popular 1415 biography of the Portuguese Prince Henry framed the enslavement of Africans as an opportunity to engage in missionary work, to save souls. He positioned the Africans as lesser and the story goes on from there. Kendi believes that people fall into three categories regarding thoughts, beliefs on race—the racist (“the real haters”), the assimilationists (“people who like you (Black people), but only with quotation marks”—because you’re “like” them), and the antiracists (“they love you because you’re like you”). It seems that rarely do we fit into one category. Instead, “over the course of a lifetime and (even over the course of a day), people can take on and act out ideas represented by more than one of these three identities. Can be both, and” (p. 3-4). Reynolds and Kendi tell story after story about how the “racial constructs” of these three groups, over time have influenced how people think. In less than 250 pages, the book covers six hundred years of history, with story after story of how this happened.

DON'T SKIP REYNOLDS' ACKNOWLEDGMENTS AT THE END - it's a call to action. He writes to his audience -
"But I have to warn you:
Scrolling will never be enough.
Reposting will never be enough.
Hashtagging will never be enough.
Because hatred has a way of convincing us that half love is whole. What I mean by that is we--all of us--have to fight against performance and lean in to participation." p. 253

There's so much I didn't know about how my life and thinking as a white woman born and living in the United States have been shaped by the racist beliefs, policies and stories told by others. Yes, I knew some of it, but this book revealed once again and ever more powerfully the troubling depth of this issue.

Highly recommend for high school and college classrooms--the teachers and the students.
