The day has arrived! Tonight we will celebrate our three amazing authors, finalists Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor and Tiffany Lethabo King and our winner, Jelani M. Favors!

Join us tonight at 6:30 pm on Facebook Live as we take a deeper dive into Dr. Favor's book, "Shelter in a Time of Storm" that explores the history of HBCUs from 1837 to the present as vital seedbeds for politicians, community leaders, reformers, and activists while grounding students in idealism, racial consciousness, and cultural nationalism.

The Museum of African American History (MAAH) Stone Book Award

The MAAH Stone Book Award encourages scholarship and writing within the field of African American history and culture by awarding a $25,000 prize to the author of an exceptional adult non-fiction book written in a literary style. Starting in 2019, prizes of $2,500 each will also be awarded to two Finalists.

The Award represents a partnership between the Museum of African American History -- Boston and Nantucket -- and the James M. and Cathleen D. Stone Foundation. The first MAAH Stone Book Award was given to Dr. Tera W. Hunter for ‘Bound in Wedlock: Slave and Free Black Marriage in the Nineteenth Century” on September 13, 2018 in the historic African Meeting House on Beacon Hill in Boston, MA. The Meeting House is the oldest surviving black church structure in the United States and a National Historic Landmark. It is one of the Museum’s four historic properties.
