Listen to the 2022 Stowe Prize winner

Ahead of his planned talk at the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center on Thursday evening, Clint Smith gave a tremendous interview to Khalilah Brown-Dean on her Connecticut Public show, “Disrupted.” (47 minutes.)

Smith won the 2022 Stowe Prize for his book, “How the Word Is Passed: A Reckoning with the History of Slavery Across America.” From the author’s website: “Beginning in his hometown of New Orleans, Clint Smith leads the reader on an unforgettable tour of monuments and landmarks—those that are honest about the past and those that are not—that offer an inter-generational story of how slavery has been central in shaping our nation’s collective history, and ourselves.”
