The Niceties

When a renowned history professor, Janine, and her brilliant student Zoe don’t see eye to eye on Zoe’s thesis about the role slavery played in the American revolution, their conversation unexpectedly careens off course—and threatens to derail their careers, their lives and the status quo. Two extraordinary women square off in a high-stakes debate over race, power, and who gets the final word on how history is written.
