    Harvard professor Tiya Miles wins Cundill History Prize for ‘All That She Carried’- HindiNewsWala

    MONTREAL – Harvard professor Tiya Miles’s book about the history of an enslaved mother and her daughter has won this year’s US$75,000 Cundill History Prize.

    Miles received the honour for “All That She Carried: The Journey of Ashley’s Sack, a Black Family Keepsake” at a gala in Montreal on Thursday evening.

    Miles beat out two other finalists: New York University professor Ada Ferrer, who was nominated for her Pulitzer Prize-winning book “Cuba: An American History,” and Vladislav M. Zubok, a professor at the London School of Economics and Political Science, who wrote “Collapse: The Fall of the Soviet Union.”

    In a news release, jury chair J.R. McNeill praised Miles’s book for its “clear and moving prose.”

    The prestigious award, which is run by McGill University, recognizes non-fiction history writing in English.

    The two runners-up each received US$10,000.
