S04 E19: An Interview with Edward Ball, author of “Slaves in the Family”

Award-winning author – as well as former journalist & lecturer – Edward Ball joined the show to talk about his compelling book Slaves in the Family.

We spent the hour talking about what brought him to write such an unvarnished and forthright family history book, his family’s history as enslavers, and meeting some of the descendants of those his family enslaved. And how he came to meet African American cousins who were not only enslaved by his family – but are cousins via the same family connection. Edward also eloquently spoke about acts of restitution.

The conversation also touched on the kind of writing discipline required to compose a non-fiction work of this nature…with some history thrown in for good measure. It was a riveting hour for us. We hope it is riveting viewing for you too.
