Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You by Ibram X. Kendi and Jason Reynolds

Lit Society: Books and Drama

A fiction writer and a historian walk into a bar and order a tall glass of racism. They then sit for days, simplifying the contents of their drink, removing all of the fluff, leaving only the truth. Finally, they serve the liquid in the form of a book to kids across the world. You and we are drinking that glass today, and by doing so, we'll find, easily digestible, the facts about the origins of racism and the meaning its history holds for us today. Before diving into Stamped, we'll discuss three reasons why it's so important to credit black creators (this one's for you, Jimmy Fallon). LET'S GET LIT! Find Alexis and Kari online: Instagram — www.instagram.com/litsocietypod; Twitter — www.twitter.com/litsocietypod; Facebook — www.facebook.com/LitSocietyPod; and our website www.LitSocietyPod.com.
