Chronicle summary of NTY article:

“Ibram X. Kendi’s career took off when he won a 2016 National Book Award for Stamped From the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America. At the time, he was one of the youngest authors to win the honor for nonfiction writing.

As Jennifer Schuessler writes in a new profile for The New York Times, Kendi’s new book “directs some of its most unstinting criticism at the author himself, and what he sees as his own racist ideas.”

“What explains Kendi’s unsparing look at his own past? His belief that there’s no such thing as “not racist” policies. Just racist and antiracist ones. Read more.”
