  • A resounding history of African America [that] challenges the myths of America's past ... crisply written ... a fresh and engaging voyage ... The word 'community' in the subtitle is the key to this book's accomplishment. Historians do not write history; the curate it. And Four Hundred Souls is all the richer for its plurality of perspectives

    Colin Grant, Observer
  • An impressive and illuminating collection that rejects Blackness in America as a singular experience and instead illustrates the range of Black experiences and voices

    Time, 21 Most Anticipated Books of 2021
  • A polyphonic work that unites writers, historians, lawyers, poets and activists ... From Morgan Parker's poem Before Revolution to writer Bernice L McFadden's soaring exploration of Zora Neale Hurston's genre-defining writing, it's something quite incredible

    Stylist
  • Highly readable and far more compelling than a mere historical digest would have been ... This collection teaches us that nothing about the latest crisis is new ... a vital addition to that curriculum on race in America and should serve as a gateway to the solo works of all the voices in Kendi and Blain's impressive choir

    Washington Post
  • A provocative, stirring anthology . . . Four Hundred Souls weaves a tapestry of unspeakable suffering and unexpected transcendence
