How the Word Is Passed

by Clint Smith


Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction

New York Times 10 Best Books of 2021

TIME Magazine 10 Best Nonfiction Books of 2021


Beginning in his hometown of New Orleans, Clint Smith leads the reader 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. Smith’s 2021 book is a landmark work of reflection and insight that offers 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.
