The history of the first Africans of Virginia has been veiled in a shroud of secrecy and misinformation for centuries. This episode tackles separating fact from fiction about their history in colonial Virginia. Author and historian Kathryn Knight joined us to talk about her new book UNVEILED – The Twenty & Odd: Documenting the First Africans in England’s America 1619-1625 and Beyond.
UNVEILED – The Twenty & Odd reveals the true story behind the landing of the first Africans in England’s America in 1619 and 1620 – removing a 400 year old political veil of corruption. For the first time, America will have a new understanding of who these first Africans were, from where they came, the struggles they faced and the amazing achievements they made.
