I highly recommend this title by YA author Jason Reynolds and American historian Dr. Ibram Kendi. This book is a YA remix of Dr. Kendi's book Stamped from the beginning. Reynolds insists this is not a history book, instead it's a book that contains both historical events and current ones in an easy to read and relatable style. It traces racism to its roots and presents ways for us to defeat it in the present.
Recommended for middle school and high school ages.
