When foremost expert on anti-racist theory and policy Kendi asked Jason Reynolds to adapt his book Stamped from the Beginning, Reynolds at first refused. He is a writer of poetry and fiction for young people, he argued, he is not a historian. But Kendi knew Reynolds was the perfect person to adap... Read More »

I was already a huge fan of Jason Reynolds, and this book has further convinced me of his genius! He made a history book into a “not history” book. The brilliant Ibram X. Kendi (Stamped, and How to Be an Antiracist) is, as I already said, brilliant, but for me his writing is quite dense and sometimes hard to follow. So Jason Reynolds took the book Stamped and modified it for younger readers (or readers like me). As someone who has always had a hard time keeping names, dates, and events straight, his irreverent, conversational, “not history” approach made the history of racism accessible and understandable to me. It took me several weeks to finish How to be An Antiracist. It took me 3 days to finish this young readers’ edition of Stamped. This should be required reading.
