We dig in the vault to uncover a conversation with Daina Ramey Berry and Kali Nicole Gross discussing their book, A Black Women’s History of the United States.

Reaching from the year 1600 to the present day, A Black Women’s History of the United States – written by renowned authors and historians Daina Ramey Berry and Kali Nicole Gross – provides a necessary, long-awaited re-centering of American history from the perspective of all those folks who have been left out of our history books.  Wide-ranging and inclusive, this book examines a diversity of Black women, including cisgender and transgender women, rich and poor, educated and uneducated,  reformers, enslaved women, artists, activists, imprisoned women leaders, and everyday people. A critical survey of their complex legacy, A Black Women’s History of the United States considers not only the exploitation and victimization of Black Women, but also their undeniable and substantial contributions to the country since its inception.
