Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America by Ibram X. Kendi

Deriving inspiration for its title from a speech delivered in the U.S. Senate in 1860 by Jefferson Davis, “Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America” traces the extensive and agonizing history of racist ideology from 15th century Portugal to the present. Ibram X. Kendi, one of America’s leading historians and antiracist advocates, begin his book by clarifying the difference between to the two main concepts in his study: racist and antiracist ideas. Kendi then unmasks some of America’s greatest icons as assimilationists – their seemingly racially progressive ideas are actually echoes of the same racist thoughts that they trying to debase. He specifically named Cotton Mather, Thomas Jefferson, William Lloyd Garrison, W.E.B Du Bois and Angela Davis as racists masquerading as progressives; all are figures and symbols of the fight and struggles for freedom, at least for the whites. This revolutionary and gripping retelling of Black history has won the National Book Award (NBA) for Nonfiction and debuted no. 1 The New York Times Best Seller List.
