Excellent book! submitted by Adam Graham on July 17, 2020, 8:32pm This belongs on your shelf with Howard Zinn's A People's History. If helps highlight the history of racism, which too many (especially white folks) has long existed and was under our noses. Highly recommend!

Challenging and thoughtful book submitted by jessNU on July 17, 2020, 8:48pm Really enjoyed this book. I read it along with a family member who was reading the young person version of the book, Stamped. A great and challenging family read.

well written submitted by crp on August 6, 2020, 1:05am another great, well-written book on a critical subject. must read.

Should be Required submitted by kath on July 20, 2021, 11:09pm The most complete and enlightening book about slavery and US policy toward African people brought to the America as slaves. This should be required reading. Indeed racism was stamped from the beginning.

Excellent book - important to read submitted by ValerieL on January 23, 2023, 3:45pm (** I listened to the e-audiobook from Libby. I did not physically read the book)
While this book is EXCELLENT, it took me a long time to get through it because it is very dense with information. I'd listen for a while and then I'd have to listen to something else as like a "palate cleanser" and let my subconscious parse out the information and absorb it. Then I'd go back for a while and then I'd have to have a break. Consequently, 19 hours of listening took me almost 6 months!

While very dense, the information is illuminating. I learned so much from this book. A lot of history of racism in general and in specifics. We're literally trying to undo over 400 years of racist beliefs. Obviously, that's not going to take just a day to get rid of.

If you read it or listen to it and find yourself spacing out with it, put it down for a bit! Read something else and come back. The information is worth coming back for. Just as it's worth taking breaks from it in order to process what you've been reading/listening.
