Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You
A Remix of the National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Beginning
“I was blown away by this book. I listened to the audio and Jason Reynold's narration is engaging, funny, and moving all rolled into one.

For hatred that continued to take root and spread. Yet I also found hope. This book does a great job of engaging the topic of race, why racism persists and gives hope that things can change. I wish I could make everyone read this book.”Kristin, Fables Books
