Slaves in the Family with Edward Ball
If you knew that you were a descendant of a slave- owner, would you tell anyone?
If you had an opportunity to apologize to descendants of those enslaved by your family, would you?
Edward Ball is a writer of narrative nonfiction and the author of five books, including The Inventor and the Tycoon (Doubleday, 2013), about the birth of moving pictures. The book tells the story of Edward Muybridge, the pioneering 19-century photographer (and admitted murderer), and Leland Stanford, the Western railroad baron, whose partnership, in California during the 1870s, gave rise to the visual media.
Edward Ball’s first book, Slaves in the Family (1998), told the story of his family’s history as slave-owners in South Carolina, and of the families they once enslaved. Slaves in the Family won the National Book Award for nonfiction, was a New York Times bestseller, was translated into five languages, and was featured on Oprah.
Edward Ball was born in Savannah, raised in Louisiana and South Carolina, and graduated from Brown University in 1982. He worked for ten years as freelance journalist in New York, writing about art and film, and becoming a columnist for The Village Voice.
His other books, all nonfiction, include The Sweet Hell Inside (2001), the story of an African-American family that rose from the ashes of the Civil War to build lives in music and in art during the Jazz Age; Peninsula of Lies (2004), the story of English writer Gordon Hall, who underwent one of the first sex reassignments—in the South during the 1960s—creating an outrage; and The Genetic Strand, about the process of using DNA to investigate family history.
Edward Ball lives in Connecticut and teaches at Yale University.

Most people look at slavery in America as some distant horror that ended with the Civil War. But the shocking reality is that there is still a very real trade in human flesh occurring around the world today. Women and children are being sold as sex slaves and America is still very much a part of this dehumanizing international business. There are those who have united to fight this very profitable flesh trade industry, but the first battle is for participating countries to acknowledge that it actually exists. Who is being bought and sold on the market today? What countries are they from? Who are the customers that buy them? How can we stop it?

In the British Westindies the Slaves were freed in 1834 but had to worked for 4 years for absoloute freedom. They had to buy and build thier villages, and aquired the lands. Nothing was given to them, like the Indians, they earned it and worked for what they got.

the revolution of the mind continues... Kanye West made a bold move this past weekend around the globe with a message of angst and revolution. Blasting his message across buildings around the world in the most wealthy neighborhoods with a message directed specifically to "white America" Ye is looking like he might be trying to bring hip-hop back to being the CNN of the ghetto. But is he relaying the angst of the people or is this a self serving rant? Lets talk it out MadMen. Join us Tuesday night at 10pm. U already know how we do...
