The woman behind 'The Bondwoman's Narrative'
The once-unidentified writer of The Bondwoman's Narrative, and a stunning story that goes from North Carolina to revolutionary Nicaragua to the free North.
Why are we still waiting for a great film about Martin Luther King Jr.?
Last week, I saw 12 Years a Slave and thought it was absolutely superb. For this reason, and because it concerns arguably the most important aspect of American history, I have been seeking out commentary about the film. What I have found instead is a bunch of hand-wringing about whether the movie should have even been made.
