I recently read Dr. Ibram X. Kendi’s landmark book Stamped from the Beginning: The definitive history of racist ideas in America and then sat down to discuss this truly important book with the host of Book Ish: The Canon Continues podcast (Book Ish ). Because this book is so well researched and covers the history of racist ideas in America so thoroughly, we were only able to scratch the surface in our hour long discussion.
If you are wondering why there is so much unrest in America over issues of race, then please listen to this podcast, and then get a copy of the book. As a historian, I believe it should be read by every student of American history.
