Assistant Professor of History Alaina E. Roberts has been awarded the Stubbendieck Great Plains Distinguished Book Prize for her first book, I've Been Here All the While: Black Freedom on Native Land. The prize celebrates the most outstanding work about the Great Plains during the past year, and is accompanied by a medal and a $10,000 check. The book prize committee said Roberts' work is "a transformative work in its conceptualization of narratives about slavery, indigenous people, and settler colonialism in the Great Plains."
