Chelsea Community Read: Read Against Racism


The Chelsea District Library and Serendipity Books are partnering to offer a community wide read of the National Book Award Winner, Stamped from the Beginning by Ibram X. Kendi. 


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.”


Read the book, then participate join us for a discussion. This discussion will be led by Joslyn Hunscher-Young (she/her/hers), a middle and high school social studies teacher with a passion for teaching and learning about diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice. With years of experience leading teens and adults through in-school and out-of-school activities to deepen our understanding about privilege and oppression in the U.S., she is confident that our work for a better society is never done and that it requires both great hope and a sincere willingness to listen and change.


Reserve a copy today by visiting chelseadistrictlibrary.org or calling 734-475-8732 ext 219. A special teen edition, Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You: A Remix of the National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Beginning with edits from award winning author Jason Reynolds is also available.
