Boston’s Museum of African American History has created a national award for nonfiction literature about African-American history and culture, and the inaugural winner will be announced next summer.
The recipient of the Museum of African American History Stone Book Award, established in partnership with the James M. and Cathleen D. Stone Foundation, will be chosen by a panel of authors, historians, and academics. The winner will take home a $25,000 prize.
“Like our collection and our many programs and exhibits, the MAAH Stone Book Award will showcase and commemorate the contributions of generations of African Americans in New England and beyond,” the museum’s executive director, Marita Rivero, said in a statement. “This exciting new initiative has the potential to grow and change in the years to come.”
The Museum of African American History includes locations in Boston and Nantucket. In Boston, the Beacon Hill campus on Joy Street includes the 1806 African Meeting House and the 1835 Abiel Smith School, the first building in the country erected solely as a school for black children.
