Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

A ground-breaking argument about children, racism and how to build the antiracist society of the future - from the author of the million-copy global bestseller How To Be an Antiracist

*A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER*

'One of the pre-eminent intellectuals on race' OWEN JONES

How do kids think about race? How are they affected by it? At what age should we talk to them about racism? What is the best way to do that? How can we raise our children to be antiracist?

In this inspiring and deeply personal investigation, Ibram X. Kendi explains how to safeguard our children from racism and how we can all participate in fostering a new generation of antiracists.

His essential and revolutionary insight is that our instinct to protect our children from racism by not talking about it is entirely wrong. Using the science of childhood development, illustrated with his own experiences as a father, he shows that only by teaching our children about the realities of racism from the youngest age can we truly protect them and build the antiracist society of the future.

Critic reviews

One of the US's most respected scholars of race and history (Afua Hirsch)
Our most trusted voice on antiracism reveals the critical role of parents, caregivers, and teachers in fostering either racist or antiracist attitudes in all children. Rendered intimate with stories from his own childhood and his parenting journey, Ibram X. Kendi once again lights the way. This book is as compassionate as it is cogent and timely (Julie Lythcott-Haims, New York Times bestselling author of How to Raise an Adult)

Great content, unbearable narration

Author as narrator is usually amazing. Here, the author’s passion could be seen, but they need to be more calming. Being enthusiastic 90% of the time during an audiobook is not the best. 10% of the time the author is calm, so it’s not like it’s not possible.

Highly informative

Ibram Kendi is truly inspirational and has contributed much to the discourse on racism. I found this book, once again, highly informative. I have huge respect for his work.
