Bettye Kearse talks about THE OTHER MADISONS: THE LOST HISTORY OF A PRESIDENT'S BLACK FAMILY in the Nothing is Cancelled Virtual Book Tour



 I am thrilled to have Bettye Kearse here talking about her book, The Other Madisons:The Lost History of a President's Black Family. It is both a personal family history and an homage to millions of silenced, invisible African Americans. In recounting the struggles, perseverance, and contributions of ten generations of my family, it reveals the myriad ways African slaves and their descendants were marginalized in or excluded from the dominant narrative of this country. The Other Madisons is an intimate work of narrative nonfiction that discovers, discloses, and embraces a more inclusive and complete American story.

Thank you for this great video talking about the book, Bettye! Watch it here:
