Discussion Questions (parts 4 and 5):
- In the afterward, Kendi and Reynolds assert, “We-all of us-have to fight against performance and lean into participation.” How has this book informed your view of what performance and participation look like? How will you participate going forward?
- As you continued to read, how did Stamped solidify or challenge your understanding of segregationist, assimilationist, and antiracist ideas and/or practices?
- If you came to our first meeting or watched Keziah’s video, how did you see the difference between a racist ideas and racism manifest in later chapters of Stamped?
- How did you see intersectionality (oppression faced by LGTBQ+ people, Black women and Indigenous people) included or omitted in Stamped?
- If you’d like to learn more about intersectionality, you can watch this video from the National Museum of African-American History and Culture.
