Praise

“Ibram X. Kendi and Joel Christian Gill understand the assignment. If certain politicians get their way and schools stop teaching anything that resembles the real history of America, then graphic novels will have to put down the capes and cowls and pick up the true stories of how America came to be America. This is an unvarnished, unapologetic, unflinching, and appropriately snarky tale of the mess we are in. And Kendi and Gill have thoughtfully put this information in the hands of the generation who, unfortunately, are going to have to figure it out.”—W. Kamau Bell, Emmy award–winning executive producer, New York Times bestselling author, and comedian

“This essential adaptation gives the visual learner something to hold onto while being flown through centuries of history and the ideas that helped shape them. The notion that IDEAS can shape history was so hard for me to grasp as a young person; a book that helps people see how racist ideas have shaped our past and present is vital for writing a new direction for humanity’s future.”—Thi Bui, author of The Best We Could Do: An Illustrated Memoir

“Joel Christian Gill’s graphic adaptation is uncompromising, masterfully enriching readers’ context and understanding within Dr. Ibram X. Kendi’s landmark work. An essential new approach to understanding centuries of systemic power dynamics throughout our society, from our shared history to possible futures.”—Nate Powell, award-winning cartoonist of the March trilogy and Save It for Later
