EL MEJOR LIBRO PARA ENTENDER CÓMO SE INSTITUCIONALIZA EL RACISMO.
GANADOR DEL NATIONAL BOOK AWARD DE NO FICCIÓN EN 2016

Tras la elección de Barack Obama, muchos declararon el inicio de una era postracial. Sin embargo, el pensamiento racista, más sofisticado e insidioso que nunca, sigue profundamente arraigado en la sociedad estadounidense. Tal y como argumenta Ibram X. Kendi-la voz más influyente de la lucha antirracista y uno de los referentes actuales del movimiento #BlackLivesMatter-,aunque las ideas racistas se desarrollan, difunden y consagran muy fácilmente, también se las puede desacreditar. Y esto es lo que se propone con Marcados al nacer , una obra maestra galardonada con el National Book Award que derriba la idea, muy asentada, de que el racismo es consecuencia directa de la ignorancia o el odio.

En esta investigación histórica profundamente documentada, Kendi nos demuestra cómo en Estados Unidos las mentes más brillantes de diferentes épocas se han esforzado en crear y perpetuar instituciones racistas y un sistema basado en políticas discriminatorias, para luego generar ideas y actitudes racistas que justifiquen ex post facto la esclavitud y la segregación. Al hablar sin tapujos del racismo y de su turbia historia, este libro nos dota de las herramientas necesarias para desenmascararlo, y se convierte en una lectura indispensable en los tiempos que corren.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The National Book Award winning history of how racist ideas were created, spread, and deeply rooted in American society.

Some Americans insist that we're living in a post-racial society. But racist thought is not just alive and well in America--it is more sophisticated and more insidious than ever. And as award-winning historian Ibram X. Kendi argues, racist ideas have a long and lingering history, one in which nearly every great American thinker is complicit.

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. He uses the life stories of five major American intellectuals to drive this history: Puritan minister Cotton Mather, Thomas Jefferson, abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison, W.E.B. Du Bois, and legendary activist Angela Davis.

As Kendi shows, racist ideas did not arise from ignorance or hatred. They were created to justify and rationalize deeply entrenched discriminatory policies and the nation's racial inequities.
In shedding light on this history, Stamped from the Beginning offers us the tools we need to expose racist thinking. In the process, he gives us reason to hope.
Praise for Stamped from the Beginning:

"We often describe a wonderful book as 'mind-blowing' or 'life-changing' but I've found this rarely to actually be the case. I found both descriptions accurate for Ibram X. Kendi's Stamped from the Beginning... I will never look at racial discrimination again after reading this marvellous, ambitious, and clear-sighted book." - George Saunders, Financial Times, Best Books of 2017
"Ambitious, well-researched and worth the time of anyone who wants to understand racism." - Seattle Times

"A deep (and often disturbing) chronicling of how anti-black thinking has entrenched itself in the fabric of American society." - The Atlantic
