Join us at the BAM Hamm Archives for a guided tour with archivist Zakiya Collier. The tour takes a close look at The Black Book, an encyclopedic survey of the Black experience in America from 1619 through the 1940s, which Toni Morrison edited while at Random House. Stay for a post-tour conversation with Collier.

This is a free event with limited space. RSVP is required. Please note this event takes place offsite at the BAM Hamm Archives in Crown Heights: 1000 Dean Street, #317, Brooklyn.
