Dr. Ibram X. Kendi and Joel Christian Gill: Stamped from the Beginning, A Graphic History
Racism has persisted throughout history—but so have antiracist efforts to dismantle it.
Award-winning historian Dr. Ibram X. Kendi and comic artist Joel Christian Gill reveal how understanding and improving the world cannot happen without identifying and facing some of the ugly forces that shape it.
Stamped from the Beginning: A Graphic History of Racist Ideas in America is an educational and comprehensive look at how people can learn from the past to work toward a most equitable and antiracist future.
