Historically Speaking: Four Hundred Souls

A Conversation with Ibram X. Kendi and Keisha N. Blain

For their newly edited volume Four Hundred Souls: A Community History of African America, 1619-2019, renowned scholars Ibram X. Kendi (How to Be an Antiracist) and Keisha N. Blain (Set the World on Fire) invited 90 talented writers to document the 400-year journey of African Americans.

Join editors Kendi and Blain for an extraordinary discussion with contributors Annette Gordon Reed (Harvard University) and Herb Boyd (City University of New York), during which they’ll examine eras including slavery, Reconstruction, and segregation — and their sustained impact on the United States today.
