Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America

by Ibram X. Kendi.

After hearing an interview with the author, I knew that I had a lot to learn about racism in order to best serve my diverse clientele. This book is detailed and astounding, and a must-read for everyone. It has helped me work to confront my own privilege, in a way that social work school did not. I highly recommend.  You can connect with Bethany at www.raabcounseling.com
