Denmark Vessey by David Robertson
Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe.
Finished "Denmark Vessey" by Robertson
Never heard of him so I looked it up and read this:
"two slaves opposed to Vesey's scheme, George Wilson and Joe LaRoche, gave the first specific testimony about a coming uprising to Charleston officials, saying a "rising" was planned for July 14. George Wilson was a mixed-race slave who was deeply loyal to his master."
Damn, sounded like a good plan too and that a$$hole ruined it.
Discussed on @Breaking Brown YouTube Book club episode. I checked it out from my my local library.
Next book they are doing is American Slavery, American Freedom in March
Slapboxing with Jesus by Victor Lavelle

@Get These Nets
"Daytona 500" Ghostface, Raekwon and RZA publishing permission is cited inside the back of the book.
Great book! The author I found out about in a Hip Hop blog review by Harold Stallworth which was for "The Big Machine" by Victor Lavelle, the author has a big following on good reads.
I'm glad it was at my library. The other book was available through e book through the library.
Yall sleeping on the library and sites like freading.com for ebooks
