The National Book Award winning history of how racist ideas were created, spread, and deeply rooted in American society. Some Americans insist that we're living in a post-racial society. Stamped from the Beginning is a history of how racist ideas are built, and how they are built to last. Understanding this history is essential if we want to have any hope of progress. Negative behavior by any Black person became proof of what was wrong with Black people, while negative behavior by any White person only proved what was wrong with that person. All the ways that racist ideas have worked hand in hand with discrimination are unearthed here.

When I arrived to take my PhD with Stow Persons in August 1962, his courses, undergraduate and graduate, were packed to the rafters. Like other practitioners of American intellectual history, such as Arthur Schlesinger J. Richard Hofstadter, and John Higham, Persons was very interested in using ideas and methods from the social sciences as a basis for writing intellectual history. In American Minds Persons began by insisting that, strictly speaking, the sources of ideas were always previous ideas.
