Concord Festival of Authors Kick-Off Keynote Speaker – Dr. Clint Smith, How the Word is Passed: A Reckoning with the History of Slavery Across America

2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join journalist, scholar, and poet Clint Smith as he discusses his celebrated new book, How the Word is Passed: A Reckoning with the History of Slavery Across America, which topped the New York Times bestseller list soon after publication. Smith leads his readers through an unforgettable tour of monuments and landmarks — those that are honest about the past and those that are not — that offer an intergenerational story of how slavery has been central in shaping our nation’s collective history, and ourselves. He’ll reflect and share insights that offer a new understanding of the hopeful role that memory and history can play in making sense of our country and how it has come to be.

Dr. Smith will be introduced by Nikki Turpin, Programming Director for The Robbins House.
