The Black Russian with Vladimir Alexandrov
Bernice Bennett host welcomes Vladimir Alexandrov, Ph.D., for an engaging discussion of his book, The Black Russian. He will explore the process of researching and writing this compelling story.
The Black Russian tells the story of Frederick Bruce Thomas, who was born in 1872 to former slaves and spent his youth on his family’s farm in Mississippi. After leaving the South and working as a waiter and valet in Chicago and Brooklyn, he went to London in 1894, then traveled throughout Europe, and decided to go to Russia in 1899, all of which was highly unusual for a black American at the time. He chose Moscow as his home, and during the next nineteen years renamed himself “Fyodor Fyodorovich Tomas,” married twice, acquired a mistress, took Russian citizenship, and by dint of his talents, hard work, charm, and guile became one of the city’s richest and most famous owners of variety theaters and restaurants. The Bolshevik Revolution ruined him and he barely escaped with his life and family to Turkey in 1919. Starting with just a handful of dollars out of the millions he had lost, Thomas made a second fortune in Constantinople by opening a series of celebrated nightclubs that introduced jazz to Turkey. However, because of the long arm of American racism, the xenophobia of the new Turkish Republic, and his own extravagance, he fell on hard times, was thrown into debtor's prison and died in Constantinople in 1928.
Dr. Alexandrov is the B. E. Bensinger Professor of Slavic Languages and Literatures and Acting Chair, Slavic Department at Yale University. www.valexandrov.com

With end-of-WW2 commemorations taking place across the world this week, the surrender of Nazi Germany on May 8th 1945 is remembered very differently in Russia compared with the West, where relatively muted commemorative events were held. This week on Behind the Headlines, we'll be examining the historical and political reasons for this discrepancy.
In addition to being guest of honor at the Moscow Victory Parade on Red Square, China's President Xi Jinping signed a raft of new deals with the Russian government, while Chinese battleships participated in joint war games with the Black Sea Fleet. Somehow, we don't think the promoters of 'isolating Russia' foresaw trans-Eurasian railways resulting from their sanctions...
While president Obama has been rallying Japan and other Pacific Asian countries behind a 'Trans-Pacific Partnership', the only large crowds in the US this week were angry ones, as protests against police brutality continue. We'll be bringing you the latest on that front, and analyzing the surprising results of the UK's general election.
Behind the Headlines airs live this Sunday, 10 May 2015, from 2-4pm EST / 11am-1pm PST / 7-9pm UTC / 8-10pm CET.
Former General & CIA Director David Petraeus splits with Obama; says Iran, not ISIS, is the real enemy; But that doesn't mean ISIS isn't going to destroy us; Putin is following a blueprint that dates back to Philip of Macedon; How Putin will reconquer the Baltic States and end NATO; Unlike congressional Republicans, board-game lovers at least know how to set a goal and think three moves ahead; and why Ted Cruz should try speaking to people instead of at them.
