Podcast Interview for the Melungeon Heritage Association

The only speaking engagement I had planned for 2020 was cancelled along with the event at which it was to occur, the annual Melungeon gathering. My planned topic for the talk was the Grimke family, but the interview began with a discussion of the last book I authored, Pell Mellers: Race and Memory in a Carolina Pocosin, and concluded with questions about my experience with MHA as past officer. The heart of the interview however focuses on Sarah Stanley Grimke and her husband and daughter. Other interviews in the seven part series are well worth a listen if the topic of the mysterious Melungeons inspires interest in learning more.
