Stamped from the Beginning
This was quite the undertaking—over 19 hours of audio over a couple months. I'm glad I read the remix, Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You (2020) by Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi, first. Aimed at teens, it's much more conversational and casual, and it gave me an outline to track my progress through this original, more academic version. Still, Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America (2017) by Ibram X. Kendi is very worth the time: it is full of eye-opening historical and current events and topics.
