The book of Bonga
Barry Babcock is interviewed by KAXE radio about his upcoming book.
"It’s really a story, I think, that is best about America and best about being an American, about how a black person made his way into northern MN in the late 1700's, and as one historian wrote, 'found this safe abode in the wilderness where all things are free, were not only able to make their life successes, but had great impact and were highly respected'. They were famous people at one time and their story has dropped through the cracks of history."
Watch for his book coming later in 2019.
