How can we bring the most relevant social issues of our time to young readers hungry to understand their world?
Enter Jason Reynolds, bestselling author and National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, and Ibram X. Kendi, award-winning scholar and New York Times bestselling author. Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You, a YA “remix” of Kendi’s National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Beginning, has a younger audience in mind as it illustrates how racist practices have played out through American history while offering tools for readers to identify and eradicate racism in their daily lives.
