NBF Presents: Black History Reexamined

February 4, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

In two groundbreaking works, 2020 National Book Award–honored authors Tamara Payne (The Dead Are Arising: The Life of Malcolm X, Winner, Nonfiction) and Isabel Wilkerson (Caste: The Origins of Our Discontent, Longlist, Nonfiction) deconstruct and re-contextualize Black experiences in America—Payne through the lens of the famed civil rights leader Malcolm X, and Wilkerson through centuries of racialized hierarchies. Join Payne and Wilkerson for a conversation on research, race, and re-writing American history.

Moderated by Wesley Lowery, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, author, and correspondent for CBS News.
