AHA Member Awarded Robert F. Kennedy Book Award (June 2021)

Congratulations to AHA member Claudio Saunt, who has been awarded the 2021 Robert F. Kennedy Book Award for his book Unworthy Republic: The Dispossession of Native Americans and the Road to Indian Territory. The Robert F. Kennedy Book Award is given annually to a book that “most faithfully and forcefully reflects Robert Kennedy's purposes-his concern for the poor and the powerless, his struggle for honest and even-handed justice, his conviction that a decent society must assure all young people a fair chance, and his faith that a free democracy can act to remedy disparities of power and opportunity.”
