A striking graphic novel edition of the National Book Award-winning history of how racist ideas have shaped American life—from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of How to Be an Antiracist.

Racism has persisted throughout history—but so have antiracist efforts to dismantle it. Through deep research and a gripping narrative that illuminates the lives of five key American figures, preeminent historian Ibram X. Kendi reveals how understanding and improving the world cannot happen without identifying and facing the racist forces that shape it.

In collaboration with award-winning historian and comic artist Joel Christian Gill, this stunningly illustrated graphic-novel adaptation of Dr. Kendi’s groundbreaking Stamped from the Beginning explores, with vivid clarity and dimensionality, the living history of America, and how we can learn from the past to work toward a more equitable, antiracist future.

    Once you read this book or the full book it’s based on, you can’t hide behind backwards thinking like “I don’t see color” and the like. You are shown the darkness in America’s past and present and, assuming you are a fully-formed human, you will want to be sure you behave in a way that helps move us into the light.

    This book is a must to understand the real impact of our racist history. I learned more in one page than reading whole texts.

    Note: This ARC was given to me for free by the author and I am reviewing this book voluntarily.Inspired by Ibram X’s novel of the same name, Joel Christian Gill creates a graphic novel interpretation that explores the controversial history of racism, how it came about, and the harmful impact racism has had on people and decision making throughout history. While I was only given an excerpt of the book, I can definitely say with certainty that Mr.Gill does and excellent job of fleshing out Mr. X’s work in graphic ethnographic form. Books like this are important to read because if we don’t learn from history and why certain things throughout history are deemed harmful, history is bound to repeat itself. Some people might think this book is “uncomfortable”, but sometimes, you need to witness the discomforts of the world to truly understand the problems of the world.The more we understand history from all perspectives, the more we slowly, but surely, build a better foundation for the next generation. Highly recommend checking out this education read when it hits online shelves on June 6th, 2023!Rating: 5/5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Trigger Warnings: Racism, Slavery, Micro Agressions, Systematic Racism, and Oppression

    Thanks to Clarkson Potter/Ten Speed Press, and NetGalley for an excerpt of Stamped from the Beginning – A Graphic History of Racist Ideas in America.Even though I was only able to read the first 70 or so pages of this graphic novel, it was absolutely PACKED with history and facts that explain how America got to where it is today in terms of racism. Although this is a very serious topic, Kendi added some levity by interjecting modern slang periodically. Gill’s illustrations are brilliant. He and Ibram X. Kendi worked so well together to bring readers an amazing and powerful book. I can’t wait to read the full book when it hits shelves this week! I would recommend this for upper elementary and high school students due to the level of vocabulary and the depth of content.

    This is such a fantastic graphic novel! I read Stamped back in 2019 and I was immediately sucked in. I tried to read it as fast as I could. I feel the same way about this new version of Stamped. The message is powerful. The illustrations are perfection. Humor was interspersed to provide just enough levity without undermining the anitracist message that Kendi delivered. Fantastic read!

    I cannot wait to read the rest of this! The introduction is a tantalizing glimpse of an engagingly and accessibly written history for young readers that is both direct and nuanced in its treatment of difficult subject material.

    Wow – I’m REALLY impressed!! This abridged offering (about 70 pages) is packed with facts surrounding the founding of American views on racism and all is spawned (slavery, disenfranchisement, etc). It outlines the actors, schools of thought, and the political and economic climates of the times to step the reader piece together the makings of America and the systems that oppressed so many for so long.The graphic format does not diminish the offering – great for the young and old, and everyone in between. Bravo on the structure/layout, content, and delivery of some difficult and complex topics. It clearly illustrates how racist thoughts and theories were propagated in multiple institutions – collegiate, religious, and legal. – and how greed/profit ensured its perpetuity and continued evolution to even deeper deplorable levels.I pre-ordered copies of the final so I can complete the offering and retain it on my personal shelf as well as gift to middle-grade relatives.Thanks to Ten Speed Press and NetGalley for an opportunity to review.

    This book is awesome. I’d already read The 1619 Project and How to Be an Antiracist and I got this as an alternative to the original Stamped from the Beginning because the style caught my interest and seemed like a fun break from the heavy text of the other two. This book is an excellent way to receive some factual, important information. I’ve bought a couple copies as gifts already.
