Racism has persisted throughout history—but so have antiracist efforts to dismantle it. Through deep research and a gripping narrative that illuminates the lives of five key American figures, preeminent historian Ibram X. Kendi reveals how understanding and improving the world cannot happen without identifying and facing the racist forces that shape it.

In collaboration with award-winning historian and comic artist Joel Christian Gill, this stunningly illustrated graphic-novel adaptation of Dr. Kendi’s groundbreaking Stamped from the Beginning explores, with vivid clarity and dimensionality, the living history of America, and how we can learn from the past to work toward a more equitable, antiracist future.

About the Author

“This is an unvarnished, unapologetic, unflinching, and appropriately snarky tale of the mess we are in.”—W. Kamau Bell, Emmy award-winning executive producer, New York Times bestselling author, and comedian

“An essential new approach to understanding centuries of systemic power dynamics throughout our society, from our shared history to possible futures.”—Nate Powell, award-winning cartoonist of the March trilogy and Save It for Later

“A book that educates and entertains in a way that makes it an indispensable teaching tool, while simultaneously establishing Gill is a master of this medium.”—David F. Walker, author of The Black Panther Party: A Graphic Novel History

“This essential adaptation gives the visual learner something to hold onto while being flown through centuries of history and the ideas that helped shape them. The notion that IDEAS can shape history was so hard for me to grasp as a young person; a book that helps people see how racist ideas have shaped our past and present is vital for writing a new direction for humanity’s future.”—Thi Bui, author of The Best We Could Do: An Illustrated Memoir
