Former AHA President Awarded 2024 Pulitzer Prize in History (May 2024)

Congratulations to former AHA president Jacqueline Jones (Univ. of Texas at Austin), who was awarded the 2024 Pulitzer Prize in History for her book, No Right to an Honest Living: The Struggles of Boston’s Black Workers in the Civil War Era (Basic Books). Jones’s book, the prize announcement said, is “a breathtakingly original reconstruction of free Black life in Boston that profoundly reshapes our understanding of the city’s abolitionist legacy and the challenging reality for its Black residents.”
