Stowe Prize 2021, honoring Dr. Eddie Glaude, for his book, Begin Again: James Baldwin’s America and Its Urgent Lessons for Our Own.

"I am honored and excited that Begin Again has been awarded the 2021 Stowe Prize. Thank you for recognizing the effort." — Dr. Eddie Glaude

Begin AgainThe Stowe Prize recognizes a distinguished book of general adult fiction or non-fiction that illuminates a critical social justice issue in contemporary society in the United States. The book must be written by a U.S. author and have been published in the United States during the previous three calendar years. The book applies informed inquiry, is accessible and engaging to a general audience, and promotes empathy and understanding. Because Stowe’s writings challenged slavery and promoted women’s education, social issues impacted by racism and gender discrimination are prioritized. In making this award, the Stowe Center recognizes the value of diversity to strengthen our communities.
