LISTEN TO STAMPED FROM THE BEGINNING BY IBRAM X. KENDI ON SPOTIFY (From Book Riot, Thanks to Ms. Chitwood)
As books about race and anti-racism dominate best-seller lists in the wake of global protests against the homicide of George Floyd, Stamped from the Beginning is backordered at several outlets and somewhat difficult to grab in print. Kendi’s name comes up twice on Amazon’s bestsellers list, for both Stamped from the Beginning and his 2019 book How to be an Anti-Racist. For all the people who have been waiting on their copies of this important book, you now have easier access to the Stamped from the Beginning audiobook.
Stamped from the Beginning is more than just the history of racism and racial progress. Kendi uses meticulous research and the life stories of five “historical tour guides.” Through these histories, Kendi reveals how racism and anti-racist ideas were not born from ignorance. Rather, they were carefully built by some of America’s most intellectual leaders.
