George Moses Horton: Uncovering and Celebrating Lost Black History

About every 30 years, some scholar “discovers” George Moses Horton, the first black man to publish a book while living as a slave. Usually, the new fame is short lived. Marjorie Hudson, whose farm is within five miles of Horton’s dwelling place in Chatham County, has determined his story is one which should not be forgotten. In this program, Hudson talks about her research methods and her discoveries in uncovering and celebrating the fascinating life and poetry of this accomplished man.
