Nantucket Book Festival: Kerri Greenidge with Kaley Kokomoor

Dr. Kerri Greenidge is Mellon Associate Professor in the Department of Studies in Race, Colonialism, and Diaspora at Tufts University, where she also co-directs the African American Trail Project. Her most recent book, The Grimkes: The Legacy of Slavery in An American Family, is a counter narrative to historical accounts of the famous abolitionist Grimke sisters which finally acknowledges the black members of that family. The Grimkes was recently listed as a best book of the year by The New York Times and was the 2023 semi-finalist for the Stone Book Award from the Museum of African American History in Boston/Nantucket. Dr. Greenidge will be in conversation with Nantucket Book Foundation Executive Director, Kaley Kokomoor, as they discuss her research of the entire Grimke family and their often conflicting contributions to freedom and equality in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.
