The Blackman Read Aloud Hour Project: STAMPED: Racism, Antiracism, and You

Today, Monday,March16, 2020, I will begin reading aloud STAMPED: Racism, Antiracism and You on The Blackman Read Aloud Hour Project. As I do with all the book selections on my Facebook Live social media program, I will read the book cover to cover. What is really exciting about this book is that it is a remix of Ibram Kendi’s book which we read on my project earlier Stamped From The Beginning: The History of Racism in the United States. We also have read Dr. Kendi’s book How To Be An Antiracist on my project as well. This new book is directed towards the younger audience so it falls at a period when many students are home due to the effects of school closings due to the corona virus. So, I ask that you get those students in front of their smartphones, laptops, pads, and desktops as I read this book. It’s that important for them to engage in this book for its importance in developing a better, far more inclusive society in the coming years.
