Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America by Ibram X. Kendi: Conversation Starters
Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America is a definitive look at race in America. From the beginning of writing the constitution, race has been a factor in the US. Kendi explores how race relationships have developed from 15th century Europe when they first developed in the context of colonization and then spread throughout the world, including America. He does it through biographies of five renowned American personalities who were openly racist, anti-racist thinkers and activists: Cotton & Mather, Thomas Jefferson, William Lloyd Garrison, W. E. B. Du Bois, and Angela Davis.
Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America was published in 2016 by Nation Books and has won the National Book Award for Nonfiction as well as the Boston Globe Best Book of 2016. In addition, the book also made it to the bestseller lists in The New York Times and Washington Post.
