It’s hard to find an author with a more expansive repertoire than Imani Perry. Professor of African American Studies for many years at Princeton, with – an now at Harvard, where she earned a law degree and Ph.D. from Harvard,– Perry lives and writes at the intersection of hope and dreams deferred.

She is the author of six books, from a deep dive into early hip hop, to Breathe: A Letter to My Sons, her meditation on the calling of mothering Black boys in America, to her latest – an eye-opening journey through the South to find the soul of our nation.
