The Museum of African American History, the James M. and Cathleen D. Stone Foundation, and the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate hosted the 2020 MAAH Stone Book Award Virtual Event. Now in its third year, the Award is an annual prize that encourages scholarship and writing within the field of African American history and culture by awarding a $25,000 prize and two $5,000 finalist prizes for exceptional adult non-fiction books written in a literary style.

The award event, which normally takes place in the historic African Meeting House on Beacon Hill, was hosted by WGBH’s Callie Crossley and featured interviews with the Award winners as well as appearances by the dynamic panel of jurors.
