This fall, Virginia Beach Public Libraries is offering a series of programs that explore the legacy of racial injustice in the Hampton Roads and Virginia Beach areas. The series entitled Stamped from the Beginning is partially funded by Virginia Humanities and offers a variety of events that include book discussions, local history and genealogy workshops, and public discussions.
This October the series continues with book discussions for adults, teens, and children about Ibram X. Kendi’s Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America. Two special age-appropriate editions of the book are available including a “remixed” edition for teens, and Stamped (For Kids): Racism, Antiracism, and You.
