Ibram Kendi book on history of American racism turned into a graphic novel

Noted “anti-racist” academic Ibram Kendi has teamed up with a fellow Boston University professor to make his 2016 book “Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America” available to a “broader readership.”

According to BU Today, Kendi and artist Joel Gill did so by turning it into a comic book-style graphic novel.

“Stamped” calls out even black figures such as Frederick Douglass, WEB DuBois and Barack Obama for their alleged “racist thoughts” — such as assimilation into “traits held in esteem by the dominant White Americans.”
