Imani Perry’s South to America: A Journey Below the Mason-Dixon to Understand the Soul of a Nation is a physical and intellectual travelogue. Journeying from her home in the North to her roots in Alabama, she visits Southern cities and towns, including Charleston. In the process, she weaves together the rich tapestry of Black culture and asserts its contribution to the identity of America. Imani Perry is the Hughes-Rogers Professor of African American Studies at Princeton University. Join us as we follow her through the history, rituals and landscapes of the South together with Tamara Butler, Executive Director of the Avery Research Center for African American History at the College of Charleston.
