Tiya Miles Wins 2022 Cundill History Prize

Tiya Miles has won the 2022 Cundill History Prize for All That She Carried: The Journey of Ashley’s Sack, a Black Family Keepsake (Random House), which the jurors called a ‘superbly written’ story of an enslaved mother and her daughter. The novel traces the lives of three generations of Black women through one object: a cotton sack. Miles, the director of the Charles Warren Center for Studies in American History at Harvard University, was awarded the $75,000 prize, which is administered by McGill University, at the prize's first in-person gala since 2019, held at the Windsor Ballrooms in Montreal.
