Dr. Ibram X. Kendi & Jason Reynolds

| E:425

On today's episode, we have National Book Award-winning author Dr. Ibram X. Kendi and Jason Reynolds, the National Ambassador for Young People's Literature. Dr. Kendi and Jason have collaborated on Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, & You a remixed version of Dr. Kendio's NBA-winning Stamped from the Beginning.

This book is perfect for young adults, students and readers of all ages to better understand the history of racism in America. Adam interviews Dr. Kendi first about his original work and then Jason at about the 25-minute mark. These are both exceptional conversations. Special Thanks to Clark-Pleasant Middle School for hosting the chat with Jason.
