Ibram X. Kendi is the National Book Award-winning author of "Stamped From The Beginning: A Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America." His relentless and passionate research puts into question the notion of a post-racial society and opens readers' and audiences' eyes to the reality of racism in America today. Dr. Kendi's lectures are sharp, informative, and hopeful, serving as a strong platform for any institution's discussions on racial discrimination.

In addition to winning the National Book Award, "Stamped From The Beginning" was also named a finalist for the 2016 National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction and nominated for the 2016 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work in Nonfiction. The book was featured on many Best Books of 2016 lists, including in the Boston Globe, Kirkus, The Washington Post, The Root, Chicago Review of Books, and Buzzfeed.

Dr. Kendi is Professor of History and International Relations and the Founding Director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University.
