    I received this book at ALA in exchange for an honest review, thank you to Little, Brown Books for Young Readers publisher for allowing me to read and review Stamped Racism, Antiracism, and You Now I will tell you all the truth when I heard they wear giving away arcs of Jason Reynolds s new book Stamped Racism, Antiracism, and You I jump at the chance to grab one of his books I tell you I have not read any of his books before but I have heard amazingly fantastic reviews about his books so I wanted to grab this arc immediately when I saw it at ALA Now I had no idea this fantastic book was a non fiction book at first but when I got home and read the synopsis I was shocked to find out it was a non fiction book and I was shock when I realize it was a book that was already written by Ibram X Kendi Now I was kind of disappointed at first this was a non fiction book written by Jason Reynolds but the facts and stories in Stamped Racism, Antiracism, and You are by Ibram X Kendi I am not a big nonfiction reader and I don t read a lot of nonfiction books but this book, this book I tell you all had me re thinking to read nonfiction books in the future I think Jason Reynolds wrote this book for Ibram X Kendi for younger readers and middle graders to better understand and learn the importance of Racism, Antiracism, and You in America today And oh my Jason Reynolds s writing style was pure brilliant and flawless that I understood every word he wrote in this book and I dare say is writing style will hook you from the very beginning as well I have heard about Ibram X Kendi that he is a really strong and very intelligent man that his books are very thought provoking and will have you thinking about what is going on in the world in the past to this present day about Racism and Antiracism in America This amazing book has even opened up of my eyes to the history of Racism and Antiracism from the past and present day Now Ibram X Kendi does state at the beginning of this book that Stamped Racism, Antiracism, and You is not a history book and I can tell you it is not a history book but true stories and facts about Racism and Antiracism through the time and I love reading every story and facts in this book that I just couldn t put this book down that I finish reading this book in two days I just couldn t get enough of this book All and all I thoroughly loved and enjoyed reading Stamped Racism, Antiracism, and You that I would like to read nonfiction books like this one hopefully soon I will most definitely try to read books by Jason Reynolds as well.

    A remix of Kendi s adult book Stamped From The Beginning, Reynolds addresses young readers directly, exploring the history of racism from the past this is not a history book to right here and right now It s accessible and unflinching, and Reynolds s performance of the audiobook is outstanding Loved the breakdown of the differences between being racist, an assimilationist, and anti racist, and I loved how we get a real look at some of the most lauded Black leaders and where and how they did and did not advance anti racist causes This book was another reminder of how grateful I am for having read Malcolm X s biography in high school.Something I ve been chewing on, and something I ll be chewing on as white people read this one if Reynolds s name weren t attached, would it be as widely read and acclaimed Because that would run pretty counter to the entire point Reynolds is beloved and important in the YA world, and he uses that for projects like this one, but he d likely bristle if another Black writer were the one to remix the book and it didn t see the same sort of immense and well deserved praise.

    Jason Reynolds has an absolute gift for a taking a topic and putting it in language that s engaging, understandable, and relatable This book is no different I can only imagine the conversations STAMPED it will spark with its readers, and I would love to see every high school have this as part of their history curriculum.

    I listened to the audiobook courtesy of Libro.fm and all I can say is, dang, I would listen to Jason Reynolds read the phone book.

    The things change, the they stay the same This is required reading for anyone with a pulse and especially for those of us who work in or attend a K 12 school I plan to do everything in my power to bring this to my school in a major way, and I hope many will do the same.

    Still reeling after finishing this advanced review copy written by Jason Reynolds and based on the work of Dr Ibram X Kendi I finished it and immediately wanted to start it again as I knew each read will offer up new knowledge To see the history of racism wrapped up like this is sheer brilliance, necessary and audacious Every person, teens and adults, should read this book, discuss this book and jump into action This is the most important book I have read this year.

    As a huge fan of the original STAMPED FROM THE BEGINNING I m beyond impressed with the energy and clarity Reynolds infused into this remix The history is still there but it s totally accessible for young folks and those adults who are intimidated by Kendi s original.

    Stamped Racism, Antiracism, and You is a re mix by Jason Reynolds of Stamped from the Beginning The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America by Ibram X Kendi In his adaptation for younger readers, Reynolds insists several times that Stamped is not a history book, although it covers the Black American experience from pre colonial times to the present day with even historical context from ancient history If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it s a duck, and Stamped is a history book In his afterword, Reynolds even admits that this is a non history history book I don t know what all that semantic fuss is about there is nothing wrong with history books, except that the intended audience of young readers might be reluctant to engage with something that sounds so academic But this is Jason Reynolds, and Jason Reynolds knows exactly how to engage young readers better than most other authors working today The subject matter of Stamped focuses on a paradigm that racial attitudes can be classified as segregationist, assimilationist, or antiracist According to Reynolds, a segregationist is racist an assimilationist is cowardly and an antiracist operates with love As he applies these concepts to American history, Reynolds challenges common perceptions of historical figures such as Phillis Wheatley, W E B Dubois, Martin Luther King, and many others The most heroic figures emerging from Stamped are Malcolm X, Angela Davis, and the first wave of hip hop artists Stamped is not an objective book, nor does it need to be In fact, its subjectivity might be its greatest strength While most nonfiction books for young adult readers are biographies, autobiographies, sports or outdoor adventure narratives, or books intended to be motivational or inspirational, Stamped is a lively book of ideas and theories designed to stimulate a young reader s intellect and curiosity I d like to see books like Stamped that use young people s language to require readers to think deeply about important issues and actively use what they learn for the betterment of themselves and their world With books like Stamped, maybe there would be no need to re frame history books as something other than what they are.
