The Future of the South Keynote - South to America: A Journey Below the Mason-Dixon to Understand the Soul of a Nation with Imani Perry
Dr. Imani Perry’s work reflects the beautiful and deeply complex history of Black thought, art, and imagination. It is also informed by her background as a legal historian and her understanding of the racial inequality embedded in American law. Dr. Perry is the Hughes-Rogers Professor of African American Studies at Princeton University; her latest book, an instant New York Times bestseller, South to America: A Journey Below the Mason-Dixon to Understand the Soul of a Nation, is an essential odyssey through the American South, and the way it defines American identity.
