Learn the history of how racist ideas were created, spread, and became deeply rooted in American society as you read and discuss this National Book Award winner.
In this deeply researched and fast-moving narrative, Ibram X. Kendi chronicles the story of anti-black racist ideas and their staggering power over the course of American history. He uses the life stories of five major American intellectuals to drive this history: Puritan minister Cotton Mather, Thomas Jefferson, abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison, W.E.B. Du Bois, and legendary activist Angela Davis.
In shedding light on this history, this book offers us the tools we need to expose racist thinking. In the process, he gives us reason to hope.
Copies of the book will be available to check out at the Library starting Monday, August 24.
