edited by Ibram X. Kendi and Keisha N. Blain
This bestseller marks a milestone in the study of African American history. It is the result of research conducted for the Four Hundred Souls project, spearheaded by National Book Award-winning historian Ibram X. Kendi and Keisha Blain. The book brings together eighty black writers from all disciplines — historians and artists, journalists and novelists — each of whom has contributed an entry about one five-year period to create a dynamic multivoiced look at the history of black people in America.
