We invite all members of the NDR Book Club to a live discussion on "Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You" by Jason Reynolds and Ibram X. Kendi on Friday, May 26 at 9 a.m. We'll be exploring the key themes and ideas of the book.
You can attend the discussion in-person at Main Building 317A or connect with us remotely via Zoom. We hope to see you there for this engaging conversation!
A remix of the National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Beginning for ages 12 and up.
A timely, crucial, and empowering exploration of racism--and antiracism--in America.
This is NOT a history book.
This is a book about the here and now.
A book to help us better understand why we are where we are.
A book about race.
The construct of race has always been used to gain and keep power, to create dynamics that separate and silence. This is a remarkable reimagining of Dr. Ibram X. Kendi's Stamped from the Beginning, winner of a National Book Award. It reveals the history of racist ideas in America and inspires hope for an antiracist future.
Stamped takes you on a race journey from then to now, shows you why we feel how we feel, and why the poison of racism lingers. It also proves that while racist ideas have always been easy to fabricate and distribute, they can also be discredited.
Through a gripping, fast-paced, and energizing narrative, Jason Reynolds shines a light on the many insidious forms of racist ideas--and on ways readers can identify and stamp out racist thoughts in their daily lives.
About NDR Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) Book Club
The NDR Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) Book Club is an inclusive colleague-led space that encourages and facilitates meaningful discussions around DEI issues. We believe that by reading books that offer a range of voices, topics, and experiences, we can deepen our understanding of these important topics and learn from each other's perspectives.
The NDR Book Club is open to all Notre Dame Research employees and is a great opportunity to connect with colleagues across different departments and locations. We typically meet once a month in a hybrid setting to discuss a selected book, and we encourage members to actively participate in the conversation and share their thoughts.
