This Month’s Book Discusses the American South and the Soul of a Nation
Learning and education are integral parts of the Alluvial Collective’s mission. What better way to educate ourselves than via a good read? With that in mind, we launched a monthly book giveaway recommending books that inspire us to discuss and reflect.
This month’s book is “South to America: A Journey Below the Mason-Dixon to Understand the Soul of a Nation” by award-winning author and scholar Imani Perry.
From the Publisher:
This is the story of a Black woman and native Alabaman returning to the region she has always called home and considering it with fresh eyes. Her journey is full of detours, deep dives, and surprising encounters with places and people. She renders Southerners from all walks of life with sensitivity and honesty, sharing her thoughts about a troubling history and the ritual humiliations and joys that characterize so much of Southern life.
