Join Ibram X. Kendi, winner of the 2016 National Book Award for Nonfiction and New York Times best-selling author, for a discussion about his acclaimed book, Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America. In this deeply researched and fast-moving narrative, Kendi chronicles the entire story of anti-Black racist ideas and their staggering power over the course of American history. Stamped from the Beginning uses the life stories of five major American intellectuals to offer a window into the contentious debates between assimilationists and segregationists and between racists and antiracists. From Puritan minister Cotton Mather to Thomas Jefferson, from fiery abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison to brilliant scholar W.E.B. Du Bois to legendary anti-prison activist Angela Davis, Kendi shows how and why some of our leading proslavery and pro-civil rights thinkers have challenged or helped cement racist ideas in America.

Register for the July Community Dinner, which will immediately precede the lecture.

About the Author: Ibram X. Kendi is Professor of History and International Relations and the Founding Director of the Anti-Racist Research and Policy Center at American University. At 34 years old, he was the youngest winner of the National Book Award for Nonfiction. Read more about Ibram Kendi.

About the Series: The July 21 discussion is a continuation of Race & American Memory, a free, ongoing series launched in 2015 that critically examines the ways in which Americans comprehend and recall U.S. history. This diverse array of public programs addresses the construction of race and its sustained impact on American life, identity, and moral integrity. The series will continue on November 17, with the Langston Hughes Project’s presentation of “Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods For Jazz,” featuring a live music and poetry performance, set against the backdrop of historical photography and film.
