Dr. Keisha N. Blain on Four Hundred Souls and African American history

| E:518

Adam speaks with Dr. Keisha N. Blain, co-editor of the new book Four Hundred Souls with Dr. Ibram X. Kendi. They discuss how the project came together, how the almost 100 authors were selected and how their essays were laid out, the coordination it took, and the astounding audiobook. There may not be a more important book released this year. A must-read book and a must-listen conversation.
