Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You: A Remix of the National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Be

Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You: A Remix of the National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Be

Author: Ibram X. Kendi, Jason Reynolds Narrator: Jason Reynolds Release Date: 01/03/2020

The #1 New York Times bestseller and a USAToday bestseller! A timely, crucial, and empowering exploration of racism--and antiracism--in America This is NOT a history book. This is a book about the here and now. A book to help us better understand why we are where we are. A book about race. The construct of race has always been used to gain and keep power, to create dynamics that separate and silence. This remarkable reimagining of Dr. Ibram X. Kendi's National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Beginning reveals the history of racist ideas in America, and inspires hope for an antiracist future. It takes you on a race journey from then to now, shows you why we feel how we feel, and why the poison of racism lingers. It also proves that while racist ideas have always been easy to fabricate and distribute, they can also be discredited. Through a gripping, fast-paced, and energizing narrative written by beloved award-winner Jason Reynolds, this book shines a light on the many insidious forms of racist ideas--and on ways readers can identify and stamp out racist thoughts in their daily lives.

Stamped from the Beginning: A Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America

Stamped from the Beginning: A Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America

Author: Ibram X. Kendi Narrator: Christopher Dontrell Piper Release Date: 01/02/2017

In fact, racist thought is alive and well in America--more sophisticated and more insidious than ever. And as award-winning historian Ibram X. Kendi argues in Stamped from the Beginning, if we have any hope of grappling with this stark reality, we must first understand how racist ideas were developed, disseminated, and enshrined in American society. In this deeply researched and fast-moving narrative, Kendi chronicles the entire story of anti-Black racist ideas and their staggering power over the course of American history. Stamped from the Beginning uses the life stories of five major American intellectuals to offer a window into the contentious debates between assimilationists and segregationists and between racists and antiracists. From Puritan minister Cotton Mather to Thomas Jefferson, from fiery abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison to brilliant scholar W.E.B. Du Bois to legendary anti-prison activist Angela Davis, Kendi shows how and why some of our leading proslavery and pro-civil rights thinkers have challenged or helped cement racist ideas in America. Contrary to popular conceptions, racist ideas did not arise from ignorance or hatred. Instead, they were devised and honed by some of the most brilliant minds of each era. These intellectuals used their brilliance to justify and rationalize deeply entrenched discriminatory policies and the nation's racial disparities in everything from wealth to health. And while racist ideas are easily produced and easily consumed, they can also be discredited. In shedding much-needed light on the murky history of racist ideas, Stamped from the Beginning offers us the tools we need to expose them--and in the process, gives us reason to hope.

Marcados al nacer: La historia definitiva de las ideas racistas en Estados Unidos

Marcados al nacer: La historia definitiva de las ideas racistas en Estados Unidos

Author: Ibram X. Kendi Narrator: Víctor Sabi Release Date: 01/04/2021

EL MEJOR LIBRO PARA ENTENDER CÓMO SE INSTITUCIONALIZA EL RACISMO. GANADOR DEL NATIONAL BOOK AWARD DE NO FICCIÓN EN 2016 Tras la elección de Barack Obama, muchos declararon el inicio de una era postracial. Sin embargo, el pensamiento racista, más sofisticado e insidioso que nunca, sigue profundamente arraigado en la sociedad estadounidense. Tal y como argumenta Ibram X. Kendi-la voz más influyente de la lucha antirracista y uno de los referentes actuales del movimiento #BlackLivesMatter-,aunque las ideas racistas se desarrollan, difunden y consagran muy fácilmente, también se las puede desacreditar. Y esto es lo que se propone con Marcados al nacer, una obra maestra galardonada con el National Book Award que derriba la idea, muy asentada, de que el racismo es consecuencia directa de la ignorancia o el odio. En esta investigación histórica profundamente documentada, Kendi nos demuestra cómo en Estados Unidos las mentes más brillantes de diferentes épocas se han esforzado en crear y perpetuar instituciones racistas y un sistema basado en políticas discriminatorias, para luego generar ideas y actitudes racistas que justifiquen ex post facto la esclavitud y la segregación. Al hablar sin tapujos del racismo y de su turbia historia, este libro nos dota de las herramientas necesarias para desenmascararlo, y se convierte en una lectura indispensable en los tiempos que corren. La crítica ha dicho... «Dado el momento político que atravesamos, este libro debería estar en la estantería de todos los jóvenes que aspiran a cambiar el mundo. No es una lectura agradable, pero la verdad no siempre lo es.» Forbes «Absorbente e implacable.» The Washington Post «Una crónica profunda y a menudo inquietante.» The Atlantic «Una historia asombrosa historia, a la vez rigurosa y accesible.» The New Republic

How To Be an Antiracist

How To Be an Antiracist

Author: Ibram X. Kendi Narrator: Ibram X. Kendi Release Date: 01/08/2019

Brought to you by Penguin. Not being racist is not enough. We have to be antiracist. In this rousing and deeply empathetic book, Ibram X. Kendi, founding director of the Antiracism Research and Policy Center, shows that when it comes to racism, neutrality is not an option: until we become part of the solution, we can only be part of the problem. Using his extraordinary gifts as a teacher and story-teller, Kendi helps us recognise that everyone is, at times, complicit in racism whether they realise it or not, and by describing with moving humility his own journey from racism to antiracism, he shows us how instead to be a force for good. Along the way, Kendi punctures all the myths and taboos that so often cloud our understanding, from arguments about what race is and whether racial differences exist to the complications that arise when race intersects with ethnicity, class, gender and sexuality. In the process he demolishes the myth of the post-racial society and builds from the ground up a vital new understanding of racism - what it is, where it is hidden, how to identify it and what to do about it.

Four Hundred Souls: A Community History of African America 1619-2019

Four Hundred Souls: A Community History of African America 1619-2019

Author: Ibram X. Kendi, Keisha N. Blain Narrator: Full Cast Release Date: 01/02/2021

Brought to you by Penguin. Four Hundred Souls is an epoch-defining history of African America, the first to appear in a generation, told by ninety leading Black voices. The story begins with the arrival of twenty Ndongo people on the shores of the first British colony in mainland America in 1619, the year before the arrival of the Mayflower. In eighty chronological chapters, each by a different author and spanning five years, the book charts the four-hundred-year journey of African Americans to the present - a journey defined by inhuman oppression, visionary struggles and stunning achievements - in a choral work of exceptional power and beauty. Contributors include some of the leading writers, historians, journalists, lawyers, poets and activists of contemporary America. They use a variety of techniques - historical essays, short stories, personal vignettes and fiery polemics - and approach history from various perspectives: through the eyes of towering historical icons or the untold stories of ordinary people, populating these pages with hundreds of extraordinary lives and personalities. Together they illuminate countless new facets to the story of slavery and resistance, segregation and survival, migration and self-discovery, reinvention and hope. Through its diversity of perspectives the book shows that to be African American means many different things and demonstrates the startling range of experiences and ideas that have always existed within the community of Blackness. Four Hundred Souls is an essential work that redefines America and the way its history can be told.

Cómo ser antirracista

Cómo ser antirracista

Author: Ibram X. Kendi Narrator: Tony Dandrades Release Date: 01/10/2020

Un ensayo innovador para entender y desarraigar el racismo y la desigualdad en nuestra sociedad. Elegido uno de los mejores libros del año por The New York Times Book Review - Time - NPR - The Washington Post - Shelf Awareness - Library Journal - Publishers Weekly - Kirkus Reviews El racismo es, en su esencia, un sistema poderoso que crea falsas jerarquías de los valores humanos; su lógica distorsionada se extiende más allá de la raza: desde la forma en que consideramos a las personas de diferentes etnias o colores de piel hasta el modo en que tratamos a las personas de diferentes sexos, identidades de género y tipos de cuerpo. El racismo se entrecruza con asuntos de clase, cultura y geografía e incluso cambia la manera en que nos vemos y nos valoramos. En Cómo ser antirracista, Kendi lleva a los lectores a través de un círculo cada vez más amplio de ideas antirracistas —desde los conceptos más básicos hasta sus posibilidades visionarias— que ayudarán a identificar claramente todas las formas de racismo, comprender sus peligrosas consecuencias y trabajar para oponerse a ellas tanto en nuestros sistemas sociales como en nuestro interior. El antirracismo es un concepto transformador que reorienta y revitaliza la conversación sobre el racismo y, más fundamentalmente, nos señala nuevas formas de pensar sobre nosotros mismos y los que nos rodean. Kendi teje una combinación electrizante de ética, historia, derecho y ciencia con su propia historia personal de despertar al antirracismo. Una obra esencial para quien desee ir más allá de la simple conciencia del racismo y dar un paso más allá para contribuir a la formación de una sociedad justa y equitativa. Reseña: «El mejor libro del año.» The New York Times Book Review
