Congratulations to our two Finalists
for the 2021 Pauli Murray Book Prize
in Black Intellectual History!

The Black Republic: African Americans and the Fate of Haiti
by Brandon Byrd

“In this extraordinary book, Brandon R. Byrd both rewrites the history of Black internationalism, locating Haiti firmly at its center, and offers a refreshingly nuanced reconsideration of the many ways that US African Americans engaged with the ‘Black Republic’ after the American Civil War.”—Marlene L. Daut, author of Baron de Vastey and the Origins of Black Atlantic Humanism






Wicked Flesh: Black Women, Intimacy, and Freedom in the Atlantic World
by Jessica Marie Johnson

Wicked Flesh is a powerful book that will set the standard for studies of gender and slavery to follow. It exemplifies the generative quality of a grounded engagement of the archives of slavery through contemporary theoretical work on race and the notion of Diaspora.”—Jennifer Morgan, author of Laboring Women: Gender and Reproduction in the Making of New World Slavery
