Kerri Greenidge recognized by Museum of African American History

Kerri Greenidge, Co-Director of the CSRD, has just been named a finalist for the MAAH Stone Book award for her work The Grimkes: The Legacy of Slavery in an American Family. This award recognizes literary work in African American history that may inspire future scholarly writing in the field, foster community engagement and dialogue in the field or celebrate or honor stories of the African American experience. 

The Museum of African American History (MAAH) will be honoring Kerri and the other finalists in an event on October 19, 6:30 p.m. at the African American Meeting House on Beacon Hill, when her award will be presented. The evening will feature remarks by this year's winning authors introduced by our fantastic panel of jurors, followed by a conversation with our winning author Thulani Davis and GBH's Under the Radar and podcast host Callie Crossley

Registration for the event will open on the MAAH website on September 19th. The first 100 attendees to arrive will receive a free signed copy of one of this year’s winning books. 

Congratulations to Kerri!
