Description

*THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER*

Four Hundred Souls is an epoch-defining history of African America, the first to appear in a generation, told by ninety leading Black voices — co-curated by Ibram X. Kendi, author of the million-copy bestseller How To Be an Antiracist, and Keisha N. Blain, author of Set the World on Fire.

In chronological chapters, each by a different author and spanning five years, the book charts the four-hundred-year journey of African Americans to the present – a journey defined by inhuman oppression, visionary struggles and stunning achievements.

Contributors include some of today’s leading writers, historians, journalists, lawyers, poets and activists. Together – through essays and short stories, personal vignettes and fiery polemics – they redefine America and the way its history can be told.

‘A vital addition to the curriculum on race in America… Compelling’ Washington Post

‘A resounding history…that challenges the myths of America’s past… Fresh and engaging’ Colin Grant, Guardian
